The Department of English Studies offers postgraduate programmes at the master and doctoral levels, leading to an MA and PhD, respectively. All postgraduate programmes are watched over by a three-member committee, which is appointed every two years. The Committee is chaired by a Postgraduate Coordinator.

The Department offers PhD degree schemes in subjects related to all research interest areas of its academic faculty. The application period for all postgraduate programmes is January 15 April 15 of each academic year.

The postgraduate programme in English Literature and Comparative Cultural Studies is designed for students who wish to undertake research in literature, with particular emphasis on cross-cultural, comparative, and interdisciplinary perspectives.
