English

Ever since the inception of the college in 1967, the Department of English has left no stone unturned to bring home the lingua Franca to the students of various disciplines. Dedicated service and dynamic growth have always remained the watchwords of the department as it took upon itself the onerous task of unlocking the immense potential of English language to a group of youngsters, by and large, averse to it on account of their prejudiced perception and lack of exposure. In the initial stages the faculty of the department taught the Pre-Degree students who had to learn English as the first language. From these humble beginnings, the department graduated to the higher level of imparting training to the various degree courses in the science and art streams. With a track record of four and a half decades of unblemished service under the efficient leadership of veteran English teachers, the department has established itself as one of the most important segments of learning in the college. Besides improving the communicative skills of the students, the department has been playing a constructive role in character-formation, development of personality and professional competence.

As English as a language took giant strides forward in the globalized world and became a vital force in business and power, the department rose to the occasion by bringing in the much sought-after B.A. Degree course in English Language and Literature. The course has commenced from the 2014-’15 academic year onwards.
