Welcome to the Department of English

The Department of English of the college is one of the oldest ones having completed fourteen years of Honours teaching. The young Department has a wonderful past and very enthusiastic present paving the way for the impressive days of the future. It nurtures the untamed youth that manifests itself in diverse forms. The distinguished professors who have served or are serving this department over the years, try to make a safe haven for learning and cooperation. A lively academic and cultural ambience and a very cordial teacher-pupil relationship have always been and hopefully will be the distinctive characteristic of the department. Due to severe shortage of funds and space the department does not have a separate seminar/departmental library but the central library has more than 1000 titles dedicated to English studies. Within the strict, limited capacity the department tries to organize students’ seminar, workshops and movie screenings to facilitate the students.

HOD Message

 ‘Semper Anticus’ (always higher)

Welcome to Department of English, Deshapran Mahavidyalaya. The department was incepted in 2010 along with the establishment of the college. This is one of the oldest functioning departments of the college. Although the department began its journey with ‘General’ course, but it started its ‘Honours’ discipline 2011 onwards. At present there are more than sixty students across the semesters studying in the department. There are three teachers including one sanctioned substantive post. Over the years the students of the department have shown commendable achievements in academic, cultural and sports fields. Our college does not have a registered alumni association but the ex-students of our department keep an amicable relationship with our departmental teachers. They often visit to their old department for academic exchange. We always try to extend our helping hand to them whenever it is necessary. During the pandemic, the departmental teachers kept track of the medical health of the students along with their education. Our department always strives for overall improvement of the students.

English literature and language have been an integral part of the courses offered in various universities in India since pre-Independence days. Since the inception of Vidyasagar University, this course has been introduced in the undergraduate courses in constituent colleges. And the syllabus in English Literature has been designed to identify the signposts of English society and culture from the Anglo-Saxon Period to the Twentieth Century. Different points of the syllabus have incorporated ideas, events, personalities, and texts that formed the backbone of each period with clear awareness of parallel or related trends in the continent. The courses also have been designed to acquaint the students with the history of the English language both synchronic and diachronic, keeping in mind the different elements such as influences, borrowings and changes over the centuries.

Keeping the above view in mind our department try-

  • To provide all information regarding the scope and opportunities of this subject.
  • To impart the lessons in such a way that the students feel they always surrounded by economic phenomenon in their day-to-day life.
  • To make students more equipped with this subject by taking class seminars, class test and by completion of syllabus in due time.
  • To make the knowledge perfect and matured and attain finality
  • To work as consultants/mentors by the teachers to help the students to fulfill their dream and to motivate them to become ideal human being.
  • To make the students more disciplined and punctual, the teachers act as friend, philosopher and guide.
  • To encourage students to take part in extracurricular activities such as sports, NSS, fine arts, music and other cultural competitions and to do short courses on Computer Training, Communication English to enhance their self-confidence.

For teaching purpose, the most common method, used by the departmental teachers, is chalk and talk. The departmental teachers use power point presentations, arrange movie and documentary shows. We have one smart class room and other class rooms. Apart from delivering lectures and distributing class notes, students are given different web links to collect study materials (YouTube, Digital Library & Google Classroom). Department prepares a semester wise lesson plan for proper teaching and to complete the allotted syllabus in due time. Students are also encouraged to participate in class seminar and group discussions on a regular basis. As a part of Internal Assessment (10 mark for each Honours & General paper) we take 2 class tests for each Honours paper and 2 class test for each General paper.
