About Us

Youthful spirit. That is the phrase perfectly describing the lecturers of English Letters Department IAIN Surakarta hailing mostly from young age.  


This youthful spirit is a catalyst for the positive energy of creativity. Departing from this youthful spirit, English Letters re-visionize themselves as the center of language based creative industry under the light of Islamic values in Greater Solo in 2019.


Holding onto this youthful spirit, English Letters formulated a slogan, RISE (Religious, Innovative, Scientific, and Entertaining). This youthful spirit embodied slogan is implemented on every aspect of academic life in the campus from which the students are expected to posses the spirit as well.
