English Language and Literature Programmes

FULL-TIME BACHELOR OF ARTS (B.A) PROGRAMME

Admission Requirements

Regular undergraduate students are admitted into the programme through University Matriculation Examination (UME), Direct Entry, and transfer.

A minimum of five O’ level credit passes obtained in not more than two sittings in WASSCE, SSCE, NECO, GCE (O/L) or any other examination that is acceptable to the  University Senate  qualifies the applicant for admission through UME. The candidate must have passed the English language and  literature in English at credit level.

Besides, the University also administers a post UME screening exercise on candidates before they are short-listed for admission.

 

Direct Entry

Candidates for admission through direct entry must have passed  literature in English in the GCE (A/L) or at the Higher School, or at the NCE. A student who has at least a credit pass in English at the NCE need not have passed literature at credit level in the SSCE, WASCE, NECO, GCE (O/L) or any other examination acceptable to the Senate of  Nnamdi Azikiwe University.

 

Transfer

Inter-Departmental Transfer

A student admitted through UME into another department, but who wishes to transfer to the Department of English Language and Literature must spend one academic session in the original department and, thereafter, apply for a transfer into the second year (200 level) of the new department, following the approval of his application by the senate.

Thus, transfers are not allowed into the first or final year of the programme. Transferring students are required to meet the admission requirements specified in 2.1 above

 

Course Codes

The code of each course in the Department begins with a three- letter abbreviation (ENG), which represents the Department of English. This is followed by a three digit number, the first of which indicates the year of study in which the course is taught, the second digit refers to the subject area within the course and the third digit represents the number of times the course has run in that area and the semester for the course; odd numbers refer to the first semester, and even numbers of the third digit refer to the second semester. There are however  some exceptions.

The stress areas represented by the middle digit are numbered as follows:

  1. Linguistics- General Language Courses
  2. Language- Phonetics and Phonology
  3. Language-Morphology, Syntax and Semantics
  4. Language-Composition, Reading and Writing
  5. English Literature-Survey and General Courses
  6. Literature in English – Area Studies, Including African Literature, etc.
  7. English Literature – Stress areas e.g Poetry, Drama, Fiction
  8. English Literature – Specific Periods, Specific Authors
