Outcome -Based Education (OBE)

The BA program in English put emphasis on learner-centered classroom and effective learning outcomes. Considering the national and global context, it has embarked on Outcome Based Education (OBE).

Program Educational Objectives:

The program educational objectives (PEO) are the broad statements set for long term. These objectives elucidate the expected achievements by the learners in terms of their career and professional development after the program of the studies, usually within 4 -5 years or more after graduation.  The PEOs of BA in English are driven from the Vision and Mission of IUBAT and the program. As the PEOs can be minimum three and maximum 5/4, we have set five PEOs. The set PEOs are:

PEO1: Our graduates will have successful professional careers in the local, regional and global organizations by demonstrating intense professionalism and upholding professional, social and ethical values that are highly needed to establish a sustainable future for all.

PEO2:  Our graduates will grow/develop sufficient knowledge of English Language, Grammar, English Literature and Applied Linguistics in order to creatively apply the philosophies and techniques in all relevant fields.

PEO3: Our graduates will be equipped with a wide range of diverse skills including communication, interpretative, analytical and leadership skills that will make them holistically sound and competent

PEO4: Our graduates will grow/nurture the spirit of lifelong learning and be self motivated to be in long term pursuit of knowledge both for personal and professional needs and thus will be recognized as competent graduates who are updated with the knowledge of contemporary issues and capable of responding to national and global needs.

Program Learning Outcomes:

The Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) are the statement of abilities/attributes the learners should possess. These outcome statements describe what knowledge and abilities the learners are supposed to have and what they are able to perform by the end of program studies. Upon the successful completion of the B.A in English program, the learners will acquire the following graduate attributes:
