Rationale of the Program

In today’s fast emerging economies it is important to highlight the potential impact of literature and its entrepreneurial side, which mostly remains hidden from students’ eyes. Realizing a literary scholar’s role in shaping civilizations, changing political systems and in exposing injustices, the department aims to establish a significant position of literature in Pakistani academia. It has been observed that students interested in these fields enter into their professional lives as informed citizens with critical minds and a full view of their heritage and history, a knowledge that enables them to assess the failings of the past and envision a successful future. In addition, there are several other areas in which a student with a degree in literature can show his or her worth. Today, literature graduates are making their mark with their acquired skills in highly sought out professional areas such as advertising, counseling, technical writing, genealogy, journalism, human resource management and so on.
