ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Post Graduate department of English was started in the year 2013 with the purpose of furthering the higher education of women students and to channelize their thoughts in the fields of research. The programme aims to familiarize the students to the various aspects of literature, its genres, literary schools, movements, authors, cultures and ideologies. The course intends to groom the students to become well rounded individuals and empowered personalities in the society and to train them to have a critical and inclusive thought towards life as revealed through literature.
The course also intends to bring out employable graduates not only in the field of teaching but also to equip them to cater to the demands of business processes. So the students have a spectrum of job opportunities as content writers, copy editors, freelancers, translators, journalists, entrepreneurs etc.
