Department of English

Achievements




The whole department works jointly in tandem with the college administration to bring out the latent talents of the students, and the department is proud of its colourful history which boasts of many university rank holders and experts in myriad fields of human endeavor.

The students of the department collaborated quite productively in the SPTP as student- peer teachers and they could contribute articles on various subjects to The Companion, an academic journal authored by the students of the college for the use of their peers.The SPTP initiative has created an effective and successful platform for the talented students to engage in the teaching- learning process as student- peer teachers.The weak students also experience a much relaxed classroom atmosphere where they are made to learn through a rather flexible teaching- learning process created by the student- peer teacher. The Companion has helped the student –peer teachers to go through the process of academic writing. In this way they get acquainted with writing scholarly articles.

It was indeed a proud moment for the whole department to be a part of the world wide observation of the quadricentennial death anniversary of William Shakespeare by organizing an intercollegiate programme called Avonean. The programme proved to be very successful and was marked by conspicuous participation from other colleges. The students could also get a first-hand experience on stage production through the performance of the Shakespearean play Macbeth, the cast drawn exclusively from the final year BA English students
