In this globalized and highly competitive world, excellence in English becomes an absolute necessity in higher education and Communication. The Department of English plays a key role in the development of the college as it offers English as a core subject to the Arts students, as a vocational subject to the Communicative English students, General English as a language subject to all the students of the college and Additional English to those students who are unable to take up any other second language at the higher level. The syllabus for General English has been designed to enhance learning, with the focus on skills of effective communication. In the teaching of Optional English the Department has moved from conventional areas of British and American Literature to introduce students to new and contemporary areas of study like Indian Literatures in Translation and Post-Colonial Literature.
