About the Department
The Department of English started its journey from 1971, the very year this College itself began it's glorious journey. Under the efficient headship of Prof. Gopal Mandal and then that of Prof. Sukanta Majumdar this department gradually earned prestige and reputation. Prof. Pranab Mukhopaddhay, the eminent writer, academic and a former faculty member, contributed immensely to the growth of this department. Presently, the department is doing exceedingly well in delivering the difficult task of teaching English language and literature to the students – mostly the first generation learners coming mainly from academically and economically underprivileged tribal communities. It's a matter of pride for us that so many students from our department have established themselves in several academic and non-academic fields in both government and private sectors. The Department along with the Central Library of the institute provides the students with plenty of books, magazines, journals, e-books & e-journals. Besides, the students of the department have distinguished themselves in the fields of sports, creativity and other co-curricular activities.
We have a rich Alumni Association integrally connected to the welfare of the department! We have the facility of a dedicated ‘Smart Classroom' where we organise Special Lectures and Seminars giving our students ample scopes to listen to the eminent teachers and scholars from across the country. We also organise student-seminars and various cultural programmes where the students get the opportunity to develop and nurture their creative and critical faculties and their research skills as well. The department is interested not only in the academic excellence of the students but also in their all round development as human beings. We have 100% ragging free environment in our department. Here, we boast of an amiable student-teacher relationship.
We give special attention to the need of the academically weaker students. Moreover, tutorial classes, group discussions are arranged on a regular basis. We also have created a Career Counselling Cell where our well-qualified and dedicated faculty members guide the students in taking vital life decisions and making crucial choices that will eventually determine the future course of their lives.
