Welcome to Department of English

“Woods are lovely dark and deep;
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep”.

Functional English course at degree level is run by the department of English quite successfully for last 15 years which enables students of the rural area to acquaint well with the four skills of English; listening, speaking, reading and writing. The students who get BA degree through this course can keep their foot on the port of education, business, law and Mass Media. They can face many challenges of the world in every possible ways.
We don’t treat students as an empty vessel of plastic material molded according to the will and wish of the teachers. They are not allowed to sit in the classroom in a row as swarms of flies and listen to what the teachers speak and write what they dictate. We give them platform to open their lips boldly. They are the real pillars of the nation who can lead their country towards the path of scientific attitude and an honest soldier to sacrifice himself for the sake of his motherland.
