                 The department of English Literature is one of those departments which started functioning with the establishment of the University of Balochistan in 1971.  The department has, since then expanded and emerged as one of the major departments of the university. It has produced hundreds of graduates who are rendering valuable services in the prestigious institutions/organizations of the country.

             Literature can be defined as 'pieces of writing that are valued as work of art specially novels, plays and poems' (Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary). The department of English Literature is one of the oldest departments of the university and indeed- a very popular one too. Literature in English involves the reading and analysis of various writers from fiction and non-fiction and poetry too. Literature teaches about life, cultures and experiences of people from all parts of the world. It makes one more wiser, awakens a sense of judgment, gives information on socio/political conditions of the region, generates sympathy for the oppressed and also polishes the critical skills. Teaching of English Literature also widens the knowledge of the Language and improves the reading and writing skills of the students.

    The department has capable and competent faculty members. It has three Ph.D. faculty members and majority of the faculty hold MPhil/ MS in their areas of interest. The departmental atmosphere is congenial and student-friendly. With strong commitment to providing quality education to the people of the province, we also support research oriented teaching and activities. To instill creativity in students, scholarly methods of research are taught and employed that include: close reading, textual analysis, historical and archival research and research projects too.

         Despite, limited resources the department offers four degree programs  that are: BS English, Masters' in Literature, MPhil (English Literature and Linguistics) and Ph.D. in Literature.

    Our English Students pursue careers in education, media, law, arts, academia and some of them pursue further study in professional and graduate schools outside Pakistan. Therefore, applying for admission in department of English Literature is a wonderful idea!
