About English Language and Literature - Unicaf University Zambia at Unicaf Scholarships

Introduction
The BA English Language and Literature is an innovative threefold degree programme which is comprised of English language teaching methodology, English literature and linguistics modules. The students will study the linguistic systems underlying language, exploring in detail how the language is structured, acquired, used and taught. In addition, the relationship between text, language, reader and author, society, economy, politics, culture and the individual will be explored.

Rationale
The courses of the linguistics component aim to provide students with a thorough grounding of the principles underpinning the study of language and the diversity of linguistic study. The teaching modules aim to provide students with knowledge and skills relevant to teaching English with an emphasis on classroom management and the use of technology. The courses in literature in English target the critical analysis of literary texts and film of different historical periods, geographical locations and genres.

Aim of the Programme
The aim of the programme is to provide students with a double major in the areas of English Literature and Linguistics, incorporating aspects of teaching methodology.

Objectives of the Programme
The degree objectives target students’ ability to:
1. demonstrate critical thinking skills as reader, writer and viewer to literature and film in English from different genres, geographical spaces and historical periods.
2. recognize, explain and apply current approaches in literary theory.
3. analyse and discuss a variety of literary texts and theories brought in dialogic interaction.
4. examine the relationship between text, reader, author and the sociocultural and politico-economic context.

7. describe, explain and interpret linguistic systems underlying language acquisition and development.
8. identify and apply language in use patterns.
9. demonstrate high proficiency in English.
10. combine teaching methodologies in order to facilitate learning.

What students think about Unicaf Scholarships

    The story of Emmanuel Okoli

    “During my studies, I learned how to think and write scientifically, research independently, use several resources and evaluate the right information. The MSc Organisational Psychology programme has helped me to widen my knowledge of human behaviour in the workplace. I developed evaluative, research, interpersonal, and analytical skills necessary for pursuing my doctoral studies. It has also broadened my view of workplace communication, relationships, interactions, leadership, management, and organisational culture. I acquired skills that will prepare me for the challenges that lie ahead.

    After graduation in 2020 with an MSc in Organisational Psychology, I immediately applied for a PhD programme in the USA. Undoubtedly, my Master’s degree from Unicaf University was my gateway to living and studying abroad. 

    Finally, I  honestly feel that this would not have been possible without Unicaf University and its scholarship programme. I strongly advise you never to lose sight of your dreams. Seize this opportunity and apply for studies at Unicaf University to gain quality education and internationally recognised qualifications that can open a path to a prosperous career.”  

    Emmanuel Okoli, Nigeria - MSc in Organisational Psychology, Unicaf University in Malawi 

    The story of Shirley Amimo

    “My Unicaf experience has been excellent so far, and the Liverpool John Moores University online Master’s programme that I have enrolled in was the best choice I have made this year. I was fortunate enough to get a generous scholarship and good guidance from my Unicaf student adviser, which, I must say, has lifted a huge burden off my shoulders. Anyone who has not tried Unicaf is missing out on getting an international quality education at an affordable cost. Online learning is very convenient, especially for people like me, who cannot attend on-campus classes or travel abroad to study.” 

    Shirley Amimo, South Sudan - MA in International Relations, Liverpool John Moores University

    The story of Mohamed Shaban EL Hamshary

    “After receiving my PMP Certification and after participating in many managerial committees inside ELSEWEDY – Electric, decided to expand my managerial knowledge and skills by studying for an MBA degree with a reputable British University such as the East London University. I was able to earn a British MBA online, at an affordable cost and without putting my career on hold, thanks to the Unicaf Scholarship Programme.”
