PhD English Literature and Linguistics
The PhD in English programme (with two streams in linguistics and literature) is designed to provide a thorough understanding of theoretical as well as practical applications of various modern and contemporary developments in the fields of both linguistics and literature. The programme will help students explore interdisciplinary aspects of linguistics and literature in English and how these two dimensions interrelate and exist as integral arts of the whole, and yet have an independent existence as well. The overall objectives of the programme are in line with the vision of the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan to promote academic and research excellence.
