The aim of the English department is to familiarize students with the study of English language through classes in literature, linguistics, drama, and translation. The students are exposed to an immersion program in English where they have the opportunity to be taught by international professors from the UK, the US, and Canada.
The department was established in 2004, and it has 28 local and foreign faculty members. It accepts approximately 185 students every year. It currently offers only BA degrees, MA in English Literature, Ph.D. in Linguistics, and Ph.D. in Literature.
