About the Department

The Department of English came into existence in the year 1967. Ever since it was established it has strived to meet the challenges of teaching English language to local learners. The department consisted of qualified enthusiastic teachers who extended their knowledge to the younger generation and equip them to be English language proficient but also to keep up with the demanding trends of the changing educated society. Besides teaching English language to all streams (Arts, Commerce and Science) we also qualify optional English students to become future English teachers. Along with the curriculum the department has organized seminars and workshop to further literary awareness and knowledge about recent writers and critics. Autonomy gives us the liberty to frame syllabi that updates literary outbreaks and the ever changing scenario of the literary world. Attempts to improve slow learners are constantly made through revision, remedial classes etc. Classroom seminars are conducted regularly to prepare the students for higher studies and competitive exams. The department also extends a English language lab for the benefit of the students. A department library also maintained for staff and students to write and benefit.
