The head of English Department, Lahore Leads University has quite a dynamic and futuristic vision of the University and its English Department. As an interdisciplinary department whose participation enables other departments to give their best to the Leads students, the department, through the services of its head always seeks success for Leads students. As an emerging university in Pakistan, the department head puts in his best to make Leads University carve a niche of respect among other universities. That is why, the campus attracts a greater number of M.A and M.Phil Linguistics and M.Phil Literature students each year. In this regard, the head struggles to hire renowned and competent faculty for the academic and intellectual grooming of M.A and M.Phil Linguistics and Literature students.
The students, in this respect, are given top priority because the progress of the university is tied up to the satisfaction of students. Therefore, at the Lahore Leads University, a holistic approach has been adopted to train students in Language skills and to nourish their interpersonal abilities through social applicability of English Language. Modern linguistics offers us potent tools of analysis and different dimensions of understanding which help us decipher meanings of Literature in a whole new way; and in our scheme of study we adhere to this philosophy.
