The major English courses for the three-year Bachelor's level are designed to link up with and develop the I.A. major English courses in English. The particular addition to the B.A. syllabus is the introduction of literary theory. The component includes major western foundational essays from the Greeks to the modern times. The rationale of these courses is to give students tools for systematic study and understanding of texts, and help them apply the tools in appreciating literary and other texts critically and creatively. Moreover, these courses attempt at inculcating in students a spirit of inquiry, logical reasoning and a taste for reading good literature. Furthermore, the courses look forward to the M.A. courses and prepare the groundwork for a more critical and detailed study of literature and other human disciplines at the post graduate level.

On the job training is especially relevant for professions, where there is no formal training existing in Nepal or where learning from a mentor / senior is more effective than studying theoretical aspects. OJT are not a standard education or training, rather they are a specific type of apprenticeship for different areas that will benefit from hands-on experience. For example, career counselors observing several counseling sessions and how a senior career counselor reacts is more beneficiary than learning in a school setting. Go to education page
