  •              The department has evolved a distinctive academic profile through innovative updating of the syllabus, materials design, audio-visual participatory teaching methods and its ambience of openness to new ideas and to social issues. It now offers very updated courses in cultural studies, film theory, gender-studies, post-colonial theories and the new literatures in English. It has made a significant departure from the conventional English literature courses to inter disciplinary courses of contemporary relevance. By establishing a language laboratory (the biggest of its kind in the state) and by designing short term intensive skill - based learning programmes, it has now become the centre for English language and communication, providing training to all the Post-graduate students on the campus. About fourteen research scholars are working under the supervision of the teachers of the department. About nine research scholars are working under the supervision of qualified guides working as teachers in the affiliated colleges. The department is also actively involved in contemporary socio-political debates.
