Department of English:


The Department of English began its journey along with the inception of the college on March 5, 1964. A new chapter was added to the department as Honours course was introduced in 1998. The department flourishes not only through its regular teaching- learning process, but also through a host of enthusiastic activities and programmes. It regularly conducts an annual Special Lecture programme, philanthropic activities, as part of Institutional Social Responsibility, counselling of the guardians, walling up of two creative wall magazines, Fortnightly Yours and Montage. An output of the research centric endeavour of the faculties and alumni is Ripples, our departmental Journal. This subject of humanities develops imaginative, creative, introspective and judgmental faculties of the young students and enriches them with critical perspectives to explore the social system surrounding us.
