PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

The NEP 2020 aims to transform the education system by integrating local, national, and international standards. It aims to gradually reduce dropouts and maximize attendance. According to the NEP 2020, students who complete one, two, or three years of UG programmes can use their acquired knowledge to obtain suitable opportunity of employment. To achieve the objectives outlined in the NEP 2020, the BOS of the School of Language and Literature-KIIT DU has prepared the current Four-year Undergraduate Degree Programme (FYUP) structure.

The FYUP English 2023 course considers English studies from various perspectives. Literary study does remain a core component of the syllabus, however, its acquisition is supplemented by the introduction of such courses which assist in the development of soft skill and vocational expertise. The FYUP Structure’s many exit and entry options allow students to exit and rejoin their programme in stages or graduate with a Certificate, Diploma or Degree in one go.

KSLL’s Undergraduate English Literary Studies Curriculum spans eight semesters, providing students with a comprehensive understanding of British, American, European, Indian, and New Literatures across genres. In addition to literary studies courses, pragmatic courses for skill enhancement and generic electives have been created to maximize employability while meeting the demands of learners across the specialization in English literature at the same time. The syllabus aims to achieve such outcomes as providing substantial subject knowledge, critical thinking, problem-solving, leadership, creativity, and cutting edge research skills through interdisciplinarity. Learners need these skills to meet the demands of the 21st-century competitive knowledge economy. The final year of FYUP focusses on research so that excelling graduates, after one year of Master’s, can pursue PhD research with ease.
