Simon Muzenda School Of Arts and Heritage Studies

Department of English and Media Studies


The English and Media Studies Department houses three sections, English Literature and Applied communication and Media Studies. The Department currently offers the following degree programmes: English and Applied Communication, a programme that combines the study of Literature and Applied Communication as essentially cultural exercises, Media and Cultural Studies which essentially is a skills-based programme that offers practical modules which provide students with hands-on exposure to the media industry and a Masters in Literary Studies which provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the socio-cultural function of creative literature.  Since its inception, the Department has striven to combine theoretical and vocational training in their course offerings and this will continue into the future.
