Major English
The rationale of doing a Major in English is to acquire tools for systematically studying, judging, and
understanding literary or other text. The Program inculcates a taste for reading with a spirit of inquiry
and the skill of logical reasoning. Furthermore, the Major assists in a detailed study of literature, and other
linked disciplines, most useful later at the post-graduate level.
