About the Department


The Department started functioning right from the beginning of the College. At first there was a need for only one staff in the department but Rev. Fr. M. George Malancharivil, the first principal of this esteemed institution insisted that an additional staff should be appointed.

This incident clearly shows the fact that the college has shown special interest to impart English related skills to the poor and marginalized students of this rural area. The advent of Globalization has necessitated a need for English language all over the world. It has become a medium of communication and it has become essential to have sound language skill in all walks of life. Having realized this fact, P.G. Course in English was established in the academic year 2007 and U.G course in English in the year 2009-2010.

Activities of the Department

The Department has achieved many milestones. Our result in part II English has been one of the best performances is the University. "A teacher is for the needy".

Keeping this principle, the members of the faculty strive hard to achieve excellent results. Weak students are given remedial teaching. They are given special attention so that they may come off in flying colour in all their endeavors. While teaching part II English to all the students, the faculty probes and provides special opportunities for the students to improve their English language skills.

Year by year Spoken English classes are conducted and students are well trained is Group discussions and interviews. The Department also takes active part in our college placement cell. The staff gives valuable suggestions to the students and makes them mastery over the art of speech making.
