BA English is fundamental & practical grammar for usage in talking while BA Literature is specialization in centuries of English literature. Hope this you understand the difference between the two, Dr K S Elmurugan Pondiicherry.

In BA you are simply reading all prose and poetry, but in literature you have to read deeply about the English language origin, history and development. On the simple BA English base you can teach up to middle but with special English literature you can teach the PG students.


BA in English is the under-graduate degree course of three years by the central universities. English Literature is vast set of epics, drama, plays, prose and poetry that let you peep into a particular genre or era of a century.
