Palakollu, Thanks for putting up your query. To become a Professor in English, you need to do post graduation in English Lieturature, Clear NET (National Eligibility Test) for lecturership. If you do MPhil then you can teach work as a lecturer to teach under graduate student without clarifying NET. You can appear for NET while you are in the last year of post-graduation course. It is recommended to begin preparation for NET right from first year of post-graduate study.


To make career as a Professor, doing PhD is highly recommended.
Become a Professor is a very long career journey where you require patience and persistence.You need to have commitment of at-least 4-5 years.
Post-graduation: requires 2 years (Full time course is recommended. Distance courses are not recommended if your goal is to become a professor)
MPhil: requires 1-2 years (MPhil is optional. You can do part-time or full time. You can take up MPhil while working.)
PhD: requires 2-4 years (you can do part-time or full time. You can take up PhD while working as a Lecturer)

Many Universities offer full time or distance courses on English Literature. Degree offered is MA (Master of Arts). You can search University in your State. Some University conducts entrance test and few University restricts admission to MA in English for those who have BA in English. Therefore, you need to inquire about Universities in your State.You can give NET. After clarifying NET, you can apply for lecturership. While working, you can do MPhil or PhD. You can also choose to do post-PhD.

Hope it helps you. If you have querries, feel free to revert to me.
