About Department of English

The Department of English has been endeavouring to provide the students a firm grounding in English studies in a very congenial atmosphere. A growing number of undergraduate students opt for English as their honours or elective subject every year. Students aspiring to obtain a post graduate degree in Literature in English get introduced to all the important aspects of literatures written in English. The teaching activity of the Department extends to other departments with the teaching of English and Communication skills to students of other departments as well. Teaching of English for Remedial English classes, and for competitive examinations is also undertaken by the Department.

We have a team of dedicated and competent teachers who are quite accessible to students. The academic excellence of the faculty members reflects in the continuous publications and participation in national and international conferences and workshops. The students have also been presenting papers at seminars and conferences and have been appreciated. The number of our students clearing UGC NET has been increasing every year. Our recent activities include a workshop in English and communication skills and a course in reading and appreciating literature under an MHRD scheme wherein a foreign faculty from Thailand was invited as a resource person. The Department seeks to have further involvement in collaborations for teaching and research.

Our placement record is excellent, with most of our former students teaching in prestigious schools, colleges, and universities. In addition, many of our former students hold good positions in administration, media, animation and other diverse fields.

The department also runs diploma courses in French and German languages as add-on courses.
