The Department of English Literature was established in 2007. Striving for eminence in teaching and research within the domain of English literary studies, the Department also offers Part II General English courses for undergraduates. It assumes a pivotal role within the college, serving as a vehicle for students to attain an advanced level of proficiency in English as a supportive subject across various departments. Additionally, it aims to instill a deeper appreciation for the literary and cultural heritage associated with the language.

The Department fosters students’ inspiration, nurturing a passion for language and fostering an understanding of its influential capabilities. It empowers students to analyze, interpret, and assess a diverse array of texts, thereby enriching their knowledge base. The primary goal of the Department is to unlock the inherent potential for excellence in students’ English proficiency.

Internships, group projects, and individual postgraduate projects are incorporated into the curriculum, offering students practical, hands-on experiences with the concepts and theories they have learned. The Phoenix Literary Club, an integral part of the Department, encourages students to actively engage in practical applications of their learning during weekly club sessions.
