Needs analysis in curriculum development has played an important role in making courses and programs practical and useful for students. In most English-major University Programs in Vietnam, courses in English Language Theory, such as Introduction to English Phonetics and Phonology, English Syntax, English Semantics, etc., make up a countable number of credits, and are considered fundamental elements for the remaining courses in the programs. Nevertheless, it seems that students have not been fully aware of the importance of these courses in the curriculum, which has led to significant challenges in teaching and learning. This study aims to examine the importance of courses in English Language Theory designed for the Bachelor's program in English Language at University of Foreign Language Studies, The University of Danang. Questionnaires and semi-structured interviews were employed to get insights of both students and lecturers into the role of these courses in students' academic and professional development. Some possible solutions were also suggested to enhance the practicality of the teaching and learning of these courses.
