In the era of post-modernism, language use has been subjected to newer and more complex interactions, involving individuals, groups and the world of communication of which they are a part. It is important therefore to explore new ideas and relate them to our experience of literature and everyday life. English now means more than a literature or a language, and is considered a gateway to learning, teaching, creative writing, journalism, information technology, management and administration. Northeast University, Bangladesh with this aim in view, offers Master of Arts in English. The courses have been designed to equip our students with the kind of expertise they would require to face life as global citizens. The program aims at providing students with exposure to areas of Linguistics, ELT and Literature that have not been covered at the undergraduate level. It will prepare them for further updating of students’ knowledge and research in those areas. It seeks to further refine students’ sensibilities, sharpen their critical faculty, and equip them with knowledge and skills that will make them first-rate professionals. The Department of English of Northeast University includes faculty members who have broad range of professional competence and are renowned in the related fields.
