Department of English Language and Literature

The Bachelor’s program of English Language and Literature at Dr. Ali Shariati Faculty of Letters and Humanities was established in 1956. In designing this program several factors such as usability of subjects, the relevance of courses contents, and their logical sequence were taken into consideration. Equipping students with four skills, i.e., comprehension, conversation, reading and writing in English are among the objectives of this program. Other objectives are to make students familiar with English literature and help them discover and improve their literary talent in this rich subject area.

The purpose of the Master’s program is to educate specialists capable of teaching English at universities and institutions of higher education to meet the needs of the society.

The Ph.D. Program is a coordinated set of research and scientific activities aimed at educating specialists capable of playing the role of academic staff at universities and institutions of higher education in teaching at different levels and carrying out research.  More
