Department of English Language Studies

Welcome to the Department of English Studies of Nile University of Nigeria. Our Department follows a tradition and reputation of being classical in liberal education, which aims at expanding the mind of the man/woman to such an extent that it makes it familiar with the whole complexities of human motivation and action. It is this familiarity that brings about the ability or capacity to develop a discourse situation and possibly crystallize original ideas to solution from the synthesis of such discourse situations. Curious about the world and the plight of others, the English major is well-equipped to tackle the biggest contemporary issues through both words and action. Mark Edmundson writes that all students should seriously consider majoring in English. “Becoming an English major means pursuing the most important subject of all — being a human being,” he says.
