ABOUT THE COURSE
The course B.A. English Literature and Communication Studies (Model III, Double Main)was launched at St. Xavier’s College in 1995. It is a double main with equal emphasis on literature and media studies therefore provides students the opportunity, flexibility and basic skill sets required to choose any of these disciplines for higher studies. The course seeks to teach communication/language skills in interpersonal relations as well as train students in print, broadcast and web journalism. Apart from communication studies, the focus on literature enables students to use language for specific as well as aesthetic purposes. The courses are typically
conducted through a combination of lectures, seminars, screenings, internships, industry visits, as well as written and practical assignments. Working as an intern in an organization while studying provides the students opportunities to go through the actual methodologies of a specific job using the real tools, equipment and documents.
