HOD’s Message

Our mission is to take a leading role in the region to prepare our students to be critical readers and thinkers through developing their analytical abilities and appreciation of the literary and linguistic productions of their own culture and those of other cultures and communities. As a team, we make a vibrant academic community which is fully poised to expand its students’ linguistic and literary horizons. This is achieved through lectures, workshops, seminars and faculty-student interaction. Our instructors motivate the students to tailor their individual understanding of language and literature, and facilitate them in responding to their academic and pre-professional needs. Similarly, we invite notable authors and scholars for their insightful lectures and readings.

We boast that our students, upon graduation, leave us having extensive theoretical knowledge about English language and literature. As for our research-based programs, these are designed to equip our students with skills in independent inquiry, critical thinking, valuable interlocution, originality – all that is needed for conducting invaluable academic research in postgraduate studies. We also boast our state-of-the-art facilities which include a well-stocked university library, fully equipped computer labs, online research databases, as well as printing and scanning facilities. We are very keen to contribute in the actualization of the vision and mission of Lahore Garrison University (LGU) through various academic programs and research activities. LGU English Department is committed to produce better individuals to build our nation.

I am looking forward to seeing you at Department of English Language and Literature, and wish all our students and graduates continued growth and success in their educational and professional endeavors.
