General Information
 
The MPhil/PhD Programme in English is designed to provide vigorous training in literary and critical cultural theories and solid foundation in Anglo-American Literature as well as cultural texts. The MPhil/PhD Programme aims at producing scholars who are articulated in theoretical discussions, highly original in their approach to cultural texts, and specialized in a chosen area and yet have exposure to the broader picture of literary and cultural studies. Interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged.
