The Department of English was established in 1994. Initially the Department offered Foundation English and Soft Skills Courses for both the Undergraduate and Post graduate students of all departments with an emphasis on LSRW skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing) to meet industry requirements of the time. In 2011, the Department was expanded and an Undergraduate B.A. degree programme affiliated to the University of Madras was introduced. The present curriculum offers an overview of traditional British and American literatures along with Contemporary World literatures.
The Department boasts of a team of qualified, committed and enthusiastic faculty who constantly challenge themselves and the students to evolve and grow. Along with a Foundation course in English, Soft-skills and Business English are made part of the syllabus to enhance language skills of students as they step into their chosen career paths. The Department in its attempt to open career avenues for students also provides training for various competitive examinations such as UPSC, TNPSC, NET, SET & IELTS.
