Department of English

 

The Department of English had a petite yet vivid start in 2003 by offering General English course to the Department of B.Sc. Biotechnology. Now the department has enhanced and burgeoned, extending its support to fifteen other Disciplines. In October 2020, the P.G. and Research Department of English was established. 

The diverse faculty members of the department consistently enrich themselves through other academic activities such as conducting seminars, symposium, conferences, workshops, presenting papers and publishing articles. The Board of Studies meeting will be conducted once in three years. The department invites highly qualified and experienced academicians to revise the syllabus to enhance the knowledge of students on the contemporary view of the society. The current syllabus is set with the objective of catering the students of all the boards. The syllabus is equally balanced with Literature and Language. Students are encouraged to do research on the resent trends in Literature and Language with the guidance of the Research Supervisor. 

In 2007, the department organised a state level workshop on “Grooming Graduates for the Job Market”. In 2008, a workshop on “Poetry Writing; a state level seminar on Attitude Skill and Knowledge-The Art of Leadership” was conducted. A state level seminar on Lingua Franca in 2009, and a National Level Conference on Linguistic Imperialism in 2011 was conducted. An Invited talk on “The History of English Literature and Overview” and a workshop on “Ventriloquism” was held on 2020. In 2021, a workshop on “Research Methodology” was conducted and in 2022, a one-day workshop on Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy was successfully conducted by the department. 

The department extends its inimitable service through its interdisciplinary and creative program. To enhance and hone the creative instinct of the students the department often invites distinguished authors who offer small, intensive workshops each term in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, screenwriting, playwriting, and television writing. 

The Research program of the Department provides an immersion experience in which students engage in substantive humanities and arts- based research designed exclusively for the need of the hour of this era.
