I wanted to study in English literature to become a writer as I always enjoyed writing blogs and reading magazines, novels. So this distance course in St.Teresa’s college which is accredited with NAAC and affiliated with Mahatma Gandhi university, school of Distance College, seemed appropriate. BA in English language and literature is under Arts department and under communicative English sub department. It’s a 2 year course and the admission process is direct.
