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 Department of English got established in the year 2002, the same year as the establishment of the college itself. In the beginning General English as a compulsory subject and English Literature as a subject of choice were offered in the Department. Later on catering to the changing needs and demands, the college in the year 2012 added more faculty to the English Department by offering a new subject viz Functional English as a subject and a course for communication skills.
