Curriculum

In 2005, LCWU, like the rest of the country, launched the new 4- year BS degree program for which a new BS English Compulsory course had to be designed and new textbooks written and compiled. Dr. Surriya Shaffi Mir was assigned this staggering task.
The textbooks listed below have been designed with the aim of providing students the opportunity to interact with a broad range of material which would help develop their competence in the English language, and would at the same time facilitate teachers without any formal foreign language teacher training in their job.

These books are prescribed for the BS Compulsory English course by the English Department as well as by the English departments of colleges affiliated with LCWU, viz., Islamia College for Women, Cooper road, Govt. College for Women, Samnabad and Govt. College for Women, Gulberg. The following are the titles of these books:

The following are titles of books published by Caravan Book House, Lahore.

  1. Reading and Vocabulary Development ENG 305 (Caravan Book House)
  2. Writing (Paraphrase, Summary and Report Writing) ENG 402 (CBH)
  3. Essays for Reading, Critical Thinking and Writing ENG 403 (CBH)
  4. Developing Writing Skills (Essays) ENG 404 (CBH)

  6. Reading Literary Texts II – A Selection of English Verse ENG 505 (CBH)
