HoD’s message (English)

The importance of English is undeniable in the contemporary education. Veering away from being a mere colonial legacy, it is now an essential and definite component in global skill requirements, a criterion for progress and advancement in the present day world. While the language component hones up the students’ skill sets and enhances their employability, the literary component of it fosters critical thinking and promotes artistic appreciation in them. English is no longer the study of the literature but comprises a wide range of exciting areas of interest including film studies, gender studies, cultural studies, media studies etc. The quickening multidisciplinary of the subject makes it a very exciting subject to pursue, with several options to branch out academically and career wise.
The Department of English is one of the oldest departments in the College which has been functioning actively since the inception of the institution with expert faculty who constantly strives hard for the successful running of the department. It is involved in all the activities of the college and contributes a lot in the development of the college. The department extends its support in training the students to participate and win prizes in various events at all levels. It nurtures the communication and soft skills of the students for their better employability.
