Department Overview

The English language unlocks the doors to a world of opportunities in Literature and Communication. The Department of English and Languages is started with the objective of enhancing the communication skills and regenerating the lost literary values.

The department offers Ph.D., M. Phil., 2 years M.A. in English Language and Literature and a five year Integrated B.A. - M.A. degree programme in English Language and Literature. A student can also exit with B.A. after successfully completing three years of the Integrated Programme. The programme is framed on the basis of equal priorities given to language and literature. The highlight of the programme includes specializations in contemporary areas like Cultural Studies, Applied Linguistics, English Language Teaching, Black Literature, Translation Studies and Post Colonial Literature. Although the specializations offered in the curriculum may differ in scope and emphasis, the focus of core courses is aimed at the development and enhancement of linguistic skills, research and critical abilities, required by the changing global employment scenario.
