Message from the program head

Department of Islamic Studies (DIS) under the School of Arts and Social Sciences is as old as UCTC itself is. It offers a high quality undergraduate degree in Islamic Studies with at least three areas of concentration - English language, literature, and English Language Teaching (ELT). Albeit quite young, ELL Department is proud to be rather an atypical English department in and beyond Chittagong in terms of its novel curriculum, and its superb faculty members, of course. Our focus is not simply on literature studies which classically offer a critical and analytical look at the world in literature.

Unlike all other English departments across the country, ELL Department at UCTC has made a striking combination of a good number of English language modules in conjunction with a variety of literature courses. Often Our ELL studies start with the English language modules which provide a real, thorough support for the freshers and sophomores so as to develop an advanced level of English language skills i.e. listening, speaking, reading and writing which our students can best utilize in their simultaneous studies of other modules, and which they can use in English language-based communication in all kinds of forms and contexts beyond in and university life.

In addition, the strength of our ELL studies lies in its inclusion of ELT and applied linguistics modules which equip students with a qualification connecting English language teaching as a profession. Further more our ELL Department boasts of its outstanding teaching staff. Having obtained their masters and PhDs from renowned foreign universities especially from the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, Singapore and India, all the faculty members are devoted to both the teaching and research activities on various domains of English literature and language, and ELT. Precisely, ELL Department with a good mix of innovative modules covering language, literature, ELT and applied linguistics taught by the faculty members with unparalleled expertise, will help students choose their path that leads to a holistic understanding of a truly ideal English discipline.
