The Department of English was established in 1993 with undergraduate courses. In 1998, English was elevated as an interdisciplinary study at graduate level. In 2002, the Department was promoted as a Research Department. M.Phil programme commenced in 2003. In 2004, P.G programme was introduced. Integrated M.Phil-Ph.D. programme was introduced in 2005. For Post Graduate and Research Programmes Course and Credit Semester system has been followed. The Post Graduate programmes have been conducted at the Main Campus, Kalady and the Regional Campus, Thiruvananthapuram. The intake is 25 with a marginal increase of 30% every year for Post Graduate programme. The intake for M.Phil — Ph.D (Integrated Programme) is 10.

The Post Graduate and Research Programmes of the University are unique: they incorporate the distinctive disciplines of this University. The treasure of indigenous knowledge, Indian aesthetics, Sanskrit Poetics and Ancient Indian Theatre form part of the Curriculum of the various courses. In addition to these features of uniqueness, the programmes move in paces with the changes that take place all over the world. As English Departments are rapidly transformed to Cultural Studies Departments, the thrust area of these programmes center round cultural studies. The teaching approach has also been changed: the traditional literary studies paradigm is replaced by the recent cultural studies paradigm.

The Board of Studies has recently prescribed a twin programme at the Post Graduate level: one with specialization in English Language Studies and the other with specialization in English Literary Studies.
