An Overview

The Department of English was established in the year 1966 with the UG programme. In 1971 it rose to the level of a PG department, and in the year 2008 the M.Phil programme was started. We owe our growth to our early departmental architects, Rev. Sr. Casilda, Rev. Sr. Lucy and Dr. Sr. Felicia. It became a research centre in 2009. For those pursuing literature with a passion the department provides a range of valuable skills (subject skills, specific skills, transferable skills, existential skills, etc.,.) and serves as a launch pad for a variety of careers. The department has experts in both literature and journalism. You are invited to explore and experience the aesthetic rapture through English Literature in our Campus.
