About

Overview

The English Language and Literature (Distance Learning) B.A. program from  University of Nicosia concentrates on three core areas: (a) Linguistics, by offering a comprehensive study of how language in general, and English in particular, actually works, (b) TEFL, by offering theoretical and practical courses in TEFL to allow students to pursue careers in teaching English, and (c) English Literature, by covering the great authors and issues from 1580 to the present day and by offering a detailed study of all genres: poetry, drama, and prose.

In addition to the knowledge and skills specific to the fields of English Language and Literature, the programme also aims to equip students with the necessary skills to undertake autonomous learning, to do independent research, and to use technology in appropriate and effective ways.

The courses of the literature component are designed to give a student an overview of developments within English Literature from the Early Modern Period to today. Through this chronological framework, the programme introduces students to many of the major figures and movements within English Literature and to the social and historical conditions under which works of literature were created.

Students are introduced to critical and theoretical texts and debates which surround the primary texts of the courses, thereby being allowed to place their own interpretations within a proper academic context and to understand the developments in critical thinking surrounding a text and within critical theory in general. 

Career Prospects

The English Language and Literature (Distance Learning) program from University of Nicosia gives students the potential to pursue many career opportunities. These opportunities include:

  • Teaching English as a Foreign Language
  • Teaching English Literature
  • The Media

The skills gained through the degree open up possibilities in many areas of the media and communications, including journalism, publishing, advertising, administration and PR.

Moreover, the nature of the programme and skills acquired are highly transferable to many apparently unrelated career opportunities. Students will have a high level of competence in English, the ability to analyse and assimilate data, conduct independent research, compile detailed reports, and formulate coherent, logical arguments; skills which many employers find attractive. Graduates from such programmes have found employment in areas such as the academia, arts administration, the law, the media, management, research and writing, politics and public relations, social work and social administration, librarianship and information services.
