Profile of Department

General Structure

1. Brief description

History

The Department of English came into being with the inception of the college in October 1972. Initially the college had only Pre-Degree Courses and the Department consisted of only two teachers. This state of things did not stay for long as Degree courses were started soon afterwards. The Department got enlarged with more teachers joining it in consequence. One of the suggestions made by the NAAC peer team that visited the college in 2008was that the Department should start a new course. It took long in spite of assiduous efforts for the B.A Course in English Language and Literature to be started in the college. The course was sanctioned in 2012. At present the Department is served by five permanent teachers and three guest teachers who are selected at the beginning of each academic year.
