The faculty of English, Emerson University, Multan cherishes a hundred-year history of excellence. Since the establishment of the college in 1920, the faculty of English has been serving the national and international community in various ways. Since the establishment of Department of English in 1963 and the commencement of Master classes, the highly qualified faculty has been equipping the students with the skills needed in various departments. As a result, many alumni had worked and have been working in courts, bureaucracy, parliament, local administrations, education, and other fields of life. We take pride in offering the highest standards of quality education through a highly qualified staff. It is of vital importance to mention here that the substantial number of the faculty at the Department of English is Post Doctorates and PhDs in Linguistics and Literature indigenously and from abroad (UK). At present, the Department has 15 faculty members including Five PhDs and 8 MPhil degree holders. Reconstituted in 2021 as Emerson University Multan, the Department of English is now offering its own degree programs, launching BS English (Language & Literature).
