Welcome to the Junior College English Department
The Department of English at the University Junior College delivers over three hundred fifty hours of lectures, seminars, tutorials and personal contact time per week to about two thousand three hundred students studying English at Advanced and Intermediate level. The different study programmes are managed by eighteen members of staff specialising in both Language and Literature and with varied teaching histories. The staff brings to the Department experiences of teaching English abroad; at Secondary and Tertiary level and in ESL, EFL and ESP contexts. The specific academic interests within the fields of Language and Literature of the staff are varied. Presently, ten members of staff are working on their PhD in areas related to the Shakespearean tragedy; Gertrude Stein and the Parisian avant-guard; language teaching policies; stylistics and literary theory; learner comprehension in expository texts; the Victorian novel; British Romanticism and motivation in language teaching and learning. We believe the academic and pedagogical strengths of the members of staff serve as a valid platform to the constant honing of the teaching/learning practices in the Department in an effort to offer our students a better learning environment.
