The current curriculum of ELSP, which is designed to align with the vision and missions of the programme, is logically structured under the components stipulated in the Ministerial Decree N0.44/2015 on the National Standard of Higher Education. the components comprises national-related courses (national), religious-related courses (university and faculty), and programme-based courses . The courses are also structured in some ways that the students achieve the ELOs in designated time and adequate sequence. Learning outcomes related to knowledge and practical skills are provided in semester 1 to 5. Meanwhile courses emphasizing analytical skills are to be taken in the 6th to 8th semester. Students may only take analytical-based or advanced courses after they complete all of language skills and introductory courses.
On the other hand, different types of courses (either language practical skills, linguistics and literature competences) are sequenced in such a way from the basic level through the most advanced. For example, English Structure is divided into Basic, Lower-Intermediate, MidIntermediate and Higher Structure. These courses are inter-related that the students may only take the subsequent course if she/he passes (complete satisfactorily) the previous one(s). This sequence also applies to the linguistics, literature and translation fields. Some advanced courses require the completion of basic courses. This is to ensure that the students learn systematically from the lowest level of difficulty to the highest, hence, it is also to ensure that some sets of learning outcomes are possessed before the learning of the subsequent ones. The curriculum structure and course distribution of the ELSP are illustrated below.
