Department of English

All Departmental Academic Resources

Introduction

Since its founding the Department of English at Government College Women University, Faisalabad has committed to being the top English department in Pakistan. As one of the largest departments within the university, the English department caters to the needs of all other departments in the university serving as the center of creativity, critical inquiry and rich culture. The department has contributed immense creative and literary activities with its twenty four full-time faculty members teaching well-developed English language, Literature and English for Specific Purpose courses at various departments all year round. Currently approximately 689 students are enrolled in the department. The Department of English flourished and upgraded with Government College Women University Faisalabad with its inception of degree classes in 1984, soon followed by its commencement of Post-Graduate classes in 1987. The BS English program launched in 2010 contributing to the development of critical understanding of a large number of students especially in relation to studying texts of literature for deep comprehension of cultural diversity in the field of literature and life under the guidance of highly insightful teachers. The department is also offering a course on Research Methodology in order to promote research and generate interdisciplinary approach to literature. In 2019, the department successfully introduced MPhil English in Applied Linguistics.

Vision

English, as the language of international communication, has gained a paramount importance all around the world. The department of English envisions to facilitate our students to learn and understand English language and literature in a mature and broader perspective. The department envisions to imbue the students with all the essentials they need to reach the international markets pertaining to all fields of life. From aural-oral skills of speaking, listening and reading to the in-depth theoretical and practical research analysis of English language and literature, we are determined to leave no stone unturned in order to inculcate in the students the ability to communicate their ideas with confidence and fluency. Keeping a keen eye on future challenges, the department keeps on reviewing the course outlines and objectives in order to meet the needs of the day as well as to stay up-to-date.

Mission

The department aims to enable the students to use their critical thinking abilities to improve their professional and social lives by becoming positive individuals unhindered by challenges. The department is committed to build the students so that they, by using English language as a means of communication, can foster a positive change. Moreover the department intends to mobilize women towards empowerment and encourage them to play an active social role in propagating the true image of Pakistani women all around the world. The mission is to collaborate with the regional and international writers of English language and literature in order to enhance the qualitative research works in this field. Further, the department is committed to engage our students in research and writing so that they can be a valuable asset in different fields where English is used as a medium of communication.
