Re-accredited by NAAC with "B++" Grade



The Department of English has functioned right from the inception of the college in 1965. The B.A. Degree Programme in English Language and Literature was launched in 1992. The department offers not only a thorough introduction to essential literary genres but also serves as the perfect platform to study works of canonical authors as well as contemporary writers of importance. The Department started offering M.A. in English Language and Literature from 1999 onwards. The Post Graduate Programme, spread over four semesters, maintains a fine balance between language and literature papers like English Language Teaching, Linguistics, Critical Studies, Cultural Studies, Shakespeare Studies, American Literature, European Drama/Fiction and Indian Writing in English. The programme also offers an opportunity for individual research, regarding literary topics during the last semesters, under the mentorship of individual guides. In 2012, the Department acquired a Research Centre status. The Department comprises eight faculty members who are actively involved in facilitating the easy acquisition of the English Language by the underprivileged.
