The Department of English at Philadelphia University was established in the Fall semester of the 1991-1992 academic year.

The Department employs a team of exemplary, highly-dedicated members who aim to cultivate well-rounded students ready to tackle the demands of the work place.

The Department utilizes the most up-to-date facilities and teaching methods, including state-of-the-art labs and a well-stocked library in order to create a quality learning/teaching environment and to turn out well-trained graduates. Due to its commitment to enhancing the academic caliber of its faculty, the Department also stresses the importance of academic research. To this end, it provides all possible assistance in order for its faculty to develop their research projects, including support for attending relevant conferences held locally and abroad.

The Department’s faculty members are noted for their active participation in local, regional, and international activities in cultural, academic, and creative fields. The Department provides opportunities for a variety of extracurricular activities in which faculty members, students, and specialists from outside the University take part. An example is the International English Department Day, which coincides with the birthday of Shakespeare on April 23rd. Another is the Student Symposium that gathers together students from the various government and private universities.

The Department offers two programs:

  1. A Bachelor’s Program in English Language and Literature
  2. A Master’s Program in English Language and Literature

The Department study plan creates a balance between different components of the language; basic language skills, linguistics in all its branches, English and American literature of all genres and ages, and translation. In addition, the Department helps students to master the English language and to fully appreciate the role of literature in culture and society.

The Department has always been keen on establishing a strong link with the community by providing services to gifted students and teachers in the various governorates of Jordan. Above all, it provides the local and Arab workforce with highly-qualified, future leaders.
