Undergraduates who read both English Literature (ELH) and Linguistics and Multilingual Studies (LMS), will benefit from the expertise and resources of the two disciplines from the School of Humanities (SoH). 

For English Literature, students will focus both on traditional historical periods and on contemporary innovative approaches to the subject. Specialisations offered include all the major literary periods, Singaporean and Asian literatures, critical and literary theory, cultural studies, film studies, drama, postmodernism, and gender studies. Students will be equipped with an outstanding command of the language, and they are skilled in analyzing critical narratives both within and beyond the literary realm making them suitable candidates for careers that require strong analytical skills and language proficiency.
