Since 1986
Since 1986, the department has been functioning as a language department offering Part-II English to all students from different disciplines with an aim to develop the grammatical and communicative skills of the students.
The Department of English came into existence with the advent of B.A. English Literature and one year B.A. programme in English for Chinese students in 2010-2011. M.A. English was introduced in 2011-2012. Through the years admissions for all these courses have been overwhelming which stands as a proof for the continuous demand for English.
Our training is designed to give the candidates sufficient practice in the techniques required for appearing for IELTS and TOEFL Tests with full confidence. Our special training programme gives the candidates enough confidence to enable one to score high and qualify themselves thoroughly in IELTS and TOEFL.
