Message from Head

Greetings, from the Head, Department of English! Daffodil International University (DIU) English Department welcomes you to visit our website. We offer both undergraduate BA (Hons) in English and Graduate/Post Graduate /MA in English Literature and MA in ELT (English Language Teaching).

English department at DIU started its journey back in 2003 with 4 students only. Presently we have around one thousand registered students

The Department of English at Daffodil International University is unique in that its undergraduate program brings together three different but related areas of study: Literature, Linguistics and Communicative English. Fresher and sophomores of the department are offered skill based (Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing) courses that directly help them upgrading their ability in English language usage. Keeping the students need in mind we have introduced a course called “Introduction to Pronunciation Development” at their beginning years. Since reading English broadens your scope for diversified areas, we offer specialized courses like “ Literature in Film and Media”, “Introduction to Journalism”, “ Introduction to Development Studies”, “Introduction to Web Design” “ Introduction to Translation” as our optional courses. Here, at English Department DIU, we have wide range of time befitting optional courses along with subject oriented core courses that prepare our students to meet the global challenges of today’s world. In the final semester at their under graduate level we offer very specialized course called English Language Proficiency that furnishes their English for further higher studies and job sectors after Graduation. English Department regularly organizes different kinds of seminars and workshops that directly link our students to their professional area.

MA in English has two major streams, MA in Applied Linguistics & ELT (English Language Teaching) and MA in Literature. MA in Applied Linguistics & ELT prepares our students for Teaching Sectors in every level with practical Micro Teaching Experience called Practicum. We also offer course called “Research Methodology” as a core course for both the streams. MA in English Literature offers attractive courses named “Creative Writing” for the students who really have literary zeal and “African and Caribbean Literature in English” that introduces them with recent cultural and theoretical changes.

We strongly believe after a five year journey with English Department DIU, a graduate will be a better suit anywhere in his field. Our motto of the department is “Learn English, Earn Success”.

DIU English Department is committed to produce better graduates to build our nation. Thank you for being a part of the journey!
