Department of English




The Department of English St George’s College Aruvithura has a proud legacy of 50 years. The Department started functioning in the year 1965 when the institution was founded as a junior college. Ever since its inception the Department has been catering to the literary, linguistic, creative and aesthetic demands, both of the academic community associated with it as well as the society of which it is an integral part. A host of 16 eminent teachers have   served the department down the years and currently 7 permanent teachers serve the Department.

In the year 2000 the innovative under-graduate programme BA English with Broadcaster and Broadcasting was introduced in the department. This high-tech job-oriented course, first of its kind in the state, continued for a span of 9 years. In 2009, CBCSS was introduced by the university and the department switched over to BA English with Teacher of English in Lower Classes considering the overwhelming demand for English teachers following the governmental decision that English is to be taught only by English teachers at the school level.
