Department of English (Establishment: 1999)

Introduction
WORDS ARE THE PHYSICIANS OF THE MIND DISEASED
ASCHYLUS (525BC-456B) PROMETHUS UNBOUND

"Literature is not exhaustible, for the sufficient and simple reason that a single book is not. A book is not an isolated entity: it is a narration, an axis of innumerable narrations. One literature differs from another, either before or after it, not so much because of the text as for the manner in which it is read."  -- Jorge Luis Borges

Department of English has been started in the college to provide quality education and enable the students to use the English Language as a medium of Communication. Our aim is to encourage the students for expressing their views in a lucid and meticulous manner and to hone the four Language Skills viz- Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing among the students.
