Department of English

DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH

Language is intrinsically ideological that requires an inquisitive mind, assisted by appropriate knowledge for its understanding. The Department of English at University of Narowal aims at equipping the students with knowledge of language, simultaneously introducing them to the aesthetics of literary studies, and infusing an interest in research. The Department offers a wide array of subjects that not only induce the spirit of learning and exploration, but also provides the students with a multi-dimensional world-view that inspires lifelong habits of critical thinking and compassionate understanding required for wholesome existence. While linguistic studies deal with the contours of communicative mediums, literature caters to instinctive understanding of life, encompassing channeled arrays of cross-disciplinary concepts related to social, psychological and historical understanding, thus creating an influx of a sufficiently compact knowledge-base. This corresponds to our overall mission of equipping students with the art of living. Moreover, our faculty is constantly striving to produce pertinent and productive research both in language and literature. We urge our scholars to invest in new research trends and unique study fields.
