Bachelor of Arts in

English (Thai Program)

Program Description

The Faculty of Arts & Humanities offers two degree programs: B.A. in English (International Program) and B.A. in English (Thai Program).

 Students can choose specific emphasis to focus in their respective degree programs: 

Emphasis
Thai Program
English for Communication
English for Business

 Over the four-year programs, English majors will develop each of the four English language macro skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking to a high degree of proficiency.

 The highly competitive professional environment of the 21st century requires a high degree of English language skills. A job applicant without the ability to use English confidently, accurately, fluently and in a variety of contexts, is immediately disadvantaged.

 The Bachelor of Arts in English programs are designed:

 

  1. To prepare students to meet these challenges where effective interpersonal and international communication in English can make the difference between success and failure.
  2. To produce educationally well-rounded individuals, capable of serving well in their chosen professions and in the communities in which they live.
