Department of English-Linguistics and Literature was set up in 2011, the year when the university obtained its charter from Government of the Punjab and recognition by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan, Islamabad. Ever since its genesis, the department has been vibrant in all its academic activities. In view of the challenges of the new millennium, nationally as well as internationally, the department has offered a wide array of programs at graduate and post-graduate levels including M Phil-Linguistics and MPhil-Literature.

In order to groom students holistically in various aspects of education– critical, creative and research– the department has organized Leads Literary Circle which is run by students themselves, of course, under the guidance of faculty members.
