Department of English

The English Department offers an amalgamation of literary and cultural forms through the study of English texts from the British Isles along with works outside the canon such as African, Australian, American, Ancient Greek, Indian, etc. The course involves a thorough study of the forms of literature like drama, poetry, prose, short stories, etc. coupled with genres such as Autobiography, Travel-Writing, Essays, Science Fiction, Films, etc. Studying literature involves the ability to place literary texts in their wider intellectual, psychological, social, cultural and historical contexts. It allows the students to understand how literature converse with other art forms and other areas of study within Social Sciences and Humanities. It also requires the students to develop the critical processes by which they analyze, judge and simultaneously learn about literary form and technique. The department runs an exclusive English Department Library so as to make recent publications, articles, books and journals available to the students so that they can undertake research and use the communicative and analytical skills to a range of careers including Advertising, Acting, Publishing, Teaching, Mass Communication, Public Relations, Journalism, Literary Studies, etc.
