About the Department :
Since English is a core subject, the department of English is as old as the college itself, which was established in 1971. Major course in this subject was introduced in 1993, and the first lecture was delivered on September 5th of that year.
The department has a common-room as well as a dedicated classroom for holding major classes. Every year on September 5th Teachers Day- the department provides an opportunity to all its students-both past and present- to meet and interact by holding an annual get-together which also coincides with the introduction of major in English. Parents are also invited on that day which sees a lot of merry-making, fun and a lavish spread!!!

The department has its biennial publication Pegasus which is put together by the teachers and students of the department and sponsored entirely by the teachers of the department. We have a departmental library which boasts of about five hundred books which includes texts and reference books besides two sets of Encyclopedias on English Literature.
