Competence and Skills

At the end of the course, graduates of Literature should be seen to have achieved greater competence and sophistication in all branches of Literature, in critical and creative expression, as well as a better understanding of Literature’s relevance to society. Literature being an elaborate instance of resourses of language in all its rich complexity, students of Literature, at the end of the under-graduate programme, should have developed more sophisticated skills in as well as in speech, together with a greater insight into human nature, a more mature under-standing of human relationships and a greater competence in giving creative expression to them.

Generically, Literature is a text-centred discipline. But at the end of the programme, students of literature should have been brought into contact with our local cultures, so that they can tap the vast repertoire of oral cultural practices for which our people are known, for creative and entrepreneurial purposes.
