WE HAVE GROWN THROUGH CHANGE!
Through Changing Times
We started with the College in 1948 and have grown with it to meet the changing needs of the post-independence Indian society… and it has been an extraordinary roller coaster ride!
What began primarily as a training ground to hone the linguistic skills of pre-Medical examinees and aspiring civil servants and academics has today emerged as a lab to experiment with and impart cutting edge ideas and knowledge in the fields of Literature, Theory, Communication, Translation and Performance.
We engage with a dynamic syllabus comprising a wide gamut of texts in English, Hindi and regional languages across diverse media using English as the primary medium of interaction. Executed through an intensive pedagogy the graduate and post-graduate programmes serve as an excellent initiation and grounding for students who want to base their careers on an in-depth study of literature or want to use these literary skills as a foundation for further studies, training, research or employment.
A world of avenues beckons graduates including media & mass communication, civil services, professional writing, teaching etc. The faculty here is a mix of young and experienced scholars, critics, theatre practitioners, authors, activists and media specialists who are also dedicated teachers actively engaged in research, mentoring, administration and guiding and executing socially responsible projects.
Our vibrant English Society provides students with the space to pursue their literary and artistic interests through its Cine Club screenings, Book Club talks as well as workshops, seminars and conferences on various contemporary themes.
