Department of English

Year of Establishment -1972


Dr. R. M. Patil

Professor and Head
   

English as a language is taught throughout the world. It opens windows to knowledge in all fields of human endeavour. From the language of international relations and diplomacy and a preserve of the elite, English has come across to the threshold of common man in India. It is all because of good knowledge of English language that we have been able to produce a large number of professionals, scholars and technocrats serving the corporate sector, academic institutions and research organizations throughout the world.
The Department of English was started in 1972. It has a very illustrious history and initially it was headed by Dr. S. R. Nair, the veteran academician. It is one of the most vibrant departments in the college offering students a variety of academic programmes from the under graduate to the doctoral level. The department introduced the State Level Elocution Competition from 2016 onwards to make a platform available to the students who wish to enhance their eloquence and language proficiency. The Department also played very significant role in shaping the college magazine Pratibha, the first prize winner twelve times in a row at the university level competition. The department is very much vigilant to take care of individual learner differences and facilitate effective learning of English for students from vernacular medium.
The Department has offered many courses to enhance the value of the regular programmes. A few of the them are: Enhancing Competence in English, Business Communication, English Grammar and Competitive Examinations, Personality Development and Soft Skills, etc. The Department has always taken a lead as far as research and publications are concerned. It has successfully completed a Major and two Minor Research Projects funded by the UGC. It has been recognized as a research centre for doctoral (Ph.D.) degree by the affiliating university. It has been allotted intake of 18 research scholars to carry out the research. The Department has successfully produced 22 Ph. Ds and 39 M. Phil students as well as 50 publications in journals of high repute and 09 books edited by the faculty. The department has organized an International Conference on English Language and Literature which turned out to be a grand success. Dr. R. M. Patil, the Head, led the Board of Studies in English at the affiliating university, revised the syllabi at UG and PG level and also introduced the Internal Evaluation System in his tenure as the Chairperson of the BoS, the Member of the Academic Council and the Senate. The faculty members are cent percent involved in the Assessment and Accreditation process of the NAAC by being the coordinator and members of the IQAC and the Steering Committee. The department remains vibrant throughout the year by organizing various academic and support academic activities. The faculty have been regularly using ICT tools in Teaching - Learning process by conducting classes in the Smart/E-Classrooms, screening films and dramas, video lectures of experts, etc. The department also has developed a Language Laboratory supported with Words Worth Software to make language learning interesting and effective.
We feel proud of our students who brought laurels to the college by being a part of various competitions held during the academic session. We have produced a good number of administrators, Police officers, Lawyers and Professors rendering their honest services to the nation. With a committed and dedicated faculty to guide, I assure all our students a very bright future.
