English being the medium of instruction and also the associate-official language emerged as the first subject to be taught in this institution and consequently the Dept of English got established in the year 1986, the same year as the establishment of the college itself. With a modest strength of around 250 students in the beginning, General English as the compulsory subject and later English Literature as a subject of choice were offered in the department. Professor A. G. Mir, Professor A. G. Shah and Professor Jaikishari were the first torch bearers or vanguards in carrying out the aim of teaching English language and literature to the then students enrolled in the college and this aim was carried forward by various other faculty members who from time to time offered services in the department.

          At present the department is running with an aim to inculcate the language skills in the students so that they can compete well on the global scene vis-a-vis language. English being the “lingua franca” provides communicative competency and gives a general ability to use language accurately, appropriately and flexibly, hence the college takes great pride in inducting English as a compulsory subject at under graduate level. The department has produced good results and has contributed a lot in the personality development of students and has enabled them to participate in various literary activities. The department has also arranged special Spoken English language classes for Ist and 2nd year students.


The department has the mission to impart best education based on academic knowledge and expertise to produce such students having proficiency in English language to make their place in the professional environment. The English programme has two main objectives—the compulsory course in General English aims to develop the communicative skills and to inculcate the four basic skills to get proficiency in the language and enable the students capable of further studies in their respective disciplines and to meet the career demands. The second course is in English Literature. The study of literature as a major subject helps to equip students with the knowledge literary canons, their historical backgrounds and skills them with close critical analysis in order to study, appreciate and above all enjoy literature.
