NAAC Accredited (Grade-‘B+’) 2nd Cycle

Department of English




“Welcome to the Department of English.It is one of the most academically vibrant departments of the college. It not only provides a thorough mentoring in English literature and language but also exposes the students to the bigger world of academia through regular seminars, conferences, special lectures, study tours etc. I along with my professors take a unique interdisciplinary approach to literature so that the students develop a fuller understanding of the "text"and the "context" in which it is produced. The professors also provide individual attention and feedback to the students according to the progress and class response. I sincerely hope, the time you spent with us in this department,will forever remain etched in your memory."
