Department of English [UG]

English Literature (Optional English)
English has been an integral part of various walks of life in India for centuries. One might even say that it has become inseparable from the essence of contemporary Indian culture. The study of language is a key to attain an understanding the history of any age. The three-year English Literature course, also known as Optional English, offers students an opportunity to understand the literary, cultural and social dynamism of England's varied past, European and Non-European writing and integrates Indian writing in English facilitating a transcendence of linguistic nativism.

The glory of a bygone era is obviously of no use unless it can be utilized to enlighten the present. On the practical side, this course offers numerous employment opportunities in the field of teaching, journalism, publishing, writing, etc. Most importantly, a sound understanding of the language equips the student with communication skills, which is an indispensable part of success in any field in todays’ competitive world.
