The BA program in English Language and Literature at Birzeit University is dedicated to cultivating a vibrant community of research and learning in three interrelated ventures: exploring the symbiosis between language, literature, and culture; surveying and analyzing the English literary canon and the range of historical and contemporary Englishes.


The BA program in English Language and Literature at Birzeit University offers a range of courses in linguistic analysis, literary criticism, and studies of various genres of writing, while interrogating power dynamics underlying the processes of writing and reading. The program provides the tools necessary for a disciplinary study of English language and literature and encourages the development of a skeptical stance and outlook on the world that recognizes the provisional nature of knowledge.
