ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Department of English was established in 1970 and functions with verve and enthusiasm. Due to the increasing demand for the course, M.A. English was started in 2013 (Self- finance). The Department started offering Part-time Ph.D. programme in 2013 and was upgraded to Research Department in 2020. We have qualified and competent faculty who work with dedication and commitment and also play the role of mentors to our students. We as a team inculcate values and discipline among students.
The Department has a vision to impart quality education to cater to the needs of students and mould them into perfect ‘English’ communicators and remarkable human beings through literature. The striking feature of the Department is ‘the well planned and comprehensive training’ provided for students. The systematic approach has opened venues for fostering students’ talents to flutter their wings of creativity. Conscious of the growing need for academic freedom, the department has introduced several new subject papers and has oriented novel courses to equip students with current trends.
The Department has a well – equipped English language laboratory to aid students to learn
and enhance their communicative skills. To encourage students of literature to be creative
and give them training for employment, we have introduced Hands-on training, Project and
in-house journals for Journalism students. The vivacity of the department is displayed in all
its aspects particularly when students are placed in an empowering position in their life.
