04 Year BA Honours programme is a step of HEC in the right direction to raise the level of education in Pakistan at par with the world. First time in history of this country curriculum has been designed to meet both national and the international standards keeping in view the professional needs of the learners. Lasbela University started the HEC-Curriculum of English for BA (04 Years Honours and MA 02 years Honours) programme right from its establishment about 2 years ago, and named it BS English.
HEC has designed courses keeping in view the professional interest of the learners in English Language and its uses in communication skills, world literary traditions, understanding the principles of applied Linguistics and the research methodology. Prior knowledge of linguistics is not essential. Subjects like Foundation of English, Pakistan Studies, Islamic Studies, Communication Skills, Urdu, Academic Reading and Writing, Human rights and Principles of Business are compulsory requirements. Then there are minor, core, and major subjects.
Department of English Language and Literature is publishing a journal named as “Balochistan Journal of Linguistics” and its published papers (of recent volumes) are available on university website.
