The Department of English started off with Common English Courses for undergraduates. The Department currently runs three Programmes - BA in English Language and Literature started in 1967, BA English Literature, Communication and Journalism (originally UGC sponsored, but currently self-financing) started in 1997, and MA English Language and Literature (self-financing) introduced in 2003. In addition to these regular Programmes, the Department runs Certificate Course in Fundamental Computer Skills and an Enrichment Module on Enhancing English Language Skills. Students are encouraged to enrol for courses offered under NTPEL and Swayam to earn additional certificates and to equip themselves with extra skills and knowledge.
The English Association, the chief platform of student activity within the department, aims to develop their innate talents and leadership abilities. A large number of programmes, both curricular and extra- curricular, are organised every year to encourage students to take up responsibilities, gain confidence and work in teams. Some of the student initiatives include:
Reading Club organises talks, competitions, book reviews for students
Students are actively involved in College Extension Programme AESOP, apart from annual interactions with orphanages and homes for the aged and the destitute.
