The Department of English in City College can, in its own right, claim to be counted among the earliest expansion programmes of this Institution with an august heritage. The Department was established in 1884 along with some other major disciplines of Arts. Since then, down the ages, the Department has been travelling along the path of sincere commitment to its learners. It has grown, developed and evolved itself with an objective of imparting first grade education to the students and doing its bit to add to the prestige of the College.
The Department of English is endowed with an adequately competent faculty, and all its members work with untiring zeal to meet the requirements of the curriculum. Both Honours and General courses in English are offered and the Department follows the syllabi of the Calcutta University.
The forte of the Department of English is its sincere commitment to all the academic assignments that come its way. The Department tries to maintain a good rapport with its students and the teachers are always available for any counselling that the students need even beyond the stipulated schedule of class hours. Frequent parent-teachers meets are held in the department to keep the guardians aware of the progress of their wards.
To maintain and enhance an effective ambience of teaching-learning the department abides by an efficient system of evaluation which works through frequent class tests, classroom quizzes and students’ seminars. A rich collection of important texts and reference volumes in the departmental seminar library adds to this environment of serious pursuit.
