Hezekiah University English Language and Literary Studies Degree Programme offers rigorous training in analytical study of the English language and Literature. It brings together some of the most important approaches to understanding language, literature ideas. Thus, students will develop important skills in clear thinking, logical arguments, coherent use of languages, as well as independent study.
Graduates of this Programme should be clearly and positively identified with adequate proficiency in pronunciation, articulateness in speech, correctness of grammar and usage, elegance and style in diction in the choice of an appropriate variety of English for use in the various administrative and professional job opportunities available in the labour market, in literary and creative writing domains and in postgraduate studies in language and literature.
The foregoing is against the background that in Nigeria, English is the official language and the language of classroom instruction and administration. Therefore, the programme devotes great attention to the achievement of improved knowledge of English and the acquisition of adequate literary and critical skills, as well as grammatical and communicative competence necessary for national development.
