This study is concerned with the design of a separate General English syllabus for English Literature students. It aims at providing students with opportunities to undertake a specialized study of English Language and Literature. The course is structured on a framework, which would develop the student’s ability to express themselves in English. It ensures a conscious understanding of the nature and structure of English equipping them with profession-oriented language skills. This training forms a bridge course which would help them tackle the complexities of the challenging texts of Part –III English Major subjects. So the study proposes modified Part - II General English and Part – III English Major syllabuses which match suitably and ensure the achievement of the perceived objectives of the courses. They help learners improve their language proficiency which in turn builds up the literary competence of learners. In brief, the author has designed a specialized Part – II General English syllabus suggesting an ESP Framework that is meant for those who have opted to do English Major as their chosen subject of study.
