Department of English
The Department of English was one of the first Departments to be set up in the University. Working under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Amrita Sharma and the inspiring supervision of the Vice-Chancellor, Dr. (Mrs). Pankaj Mittal, the Department today holds the privilege of being the premier Department of the University. The Department carries the dual responsibility of catering to the development of Communication and Soft skills of the students of the University and carrying on the P.G. Courses in the Department ensuring the growth, grooming and nurturing of Critical perspectives in the minds of the learners.
The department is the first in Haryana state to offer P.G. courses with twofold emphasis — Linguistics/ELT and Literature. The courses are a class by themselves which equip the learners in such a way that they can pursue a specialization in either of the two depending on their priority to choose teaching or the corporate sector. The department also offers a Ph.D programme. The department is also running a pilot programme on NET training.
To hone the Communication Skills of the University students, the Department has the facility of Learning Resource Centre with six well equipped Language Labs (audio and video). The modern approach of teaching with technology is used to train students in Listening and Speaking. The Department also caters to the conventional classroom teaching of the UG students which emphasize on reading and writing aspects of the language. The aim is to ensure that every girl who becomes a part of this University becomes fluent in English when she leaves the University after the completion of her studies.
The Faculty of the Department is well qualified and six of them are certified Business English Trainers from the British Council. The faculty successfully handles about 3000 University students.
The Department Library contains more than 800 books, all of which are accessible to the students. The Department has a Conference room and 15 computer terminals. The Department offers a lively and diverse range of lectures, seminars and group discussions to enhance the skills of the learners.
The Department operates in such a way as to create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere in which ideas can be freely exchanged. Extension lectures are regularly organized. The department also invites Visiting Fellows and research students.
The teaching staff is committed to set standards of excellence in the University and is striving hard towards achieving the goal and vision with which this University has been set up.
