In case you have a strong inclination for English Literature than you should certainly go for this. The eligibility criteria is 50% The Salient features of the department include : • Community projects, Live and industry-based projects, Regular Field Visit, Field Project, and Internships are embedded into Teaching-Learning process to appreciate and comprehend the society needs. • Study and Research facilities in GIS, Remote Sensing, Disaster Relief, availability of Psychometric Tests, exposure to Foreign languages, research paper writing, historical artifacts, social impact analysis etc. enriches learning. • Emphasis on Personality Development and life skills.

It depends on the university you are choosing. For example, to get admission to the LPU, you should have passed with 50% aggregate marks in Bachelor’s degree (any discipline) or equivalent. PU provides opportunities for summer schools/winter school for its students. These programs generally happen in the summer vacations or winter vacations of the academic year. A summer/winter school is a form of educational program that offers courses, both academic and non-academic. These programs lead to firsthand experience rather than theoretical knowledge. Students can have the best of both worlds, have international exposure without disturbing their academic schedule. Courses usually for 1 to 6 weeks. Benefits of International Exposure Programme Summer/Winter Schools are generally run by expert faculty in their particular field. Hence the applicant would be gaining an academically quiet a lot. Make new friends. Summers Schools are attended by students around the world hence meeting new people and making new friends. Make connections with the faculty for your higher education. Budget-Friendly. This means the students who are interested in getting an International Exposure can with fewer budgets apply for these summer/Winter School Programs. Learning the culture of the new country and sightseeing, as these kinds of summer/winter programs include cultural excursions and visit places of historical importance. For more details, you may refer to the LPU website. I hope this helps Good Luck!!!

Dear student, the MA English aspirants must have studied English as one of the compulsory subjects at the graduation level or must have a bachelor’s degree in English (or an allied discipline) to be eligible for admission. Some institutions accept an entrance exam score while some others accept the previous qualifying exam score of the applicants for admission purpose. In short, if you have not studied English at the ug level or do not have a bachelor’s degree in English or a relevant discipline, you cannot apply for MA English admission in any reputed university/institution offering the programme.
