Ever since the inception of the college in 1967, the Department of English has left no stone unturned to bring home the lingua Franca to the students of various disciplines. Dedicated service and dynamic growth have always remained the watchwords of the department as it took upon itself the onerous task of unlocking the immense potential of English language to a group of youngsters, by and large, averse to it on account of their prejudiced perception and lack of exposure. In the initial stages, the faculty of the department taught the Pre-degree students who had to learn English as the first language. From these humble beginnings, the department graduated to higher levels by imparting training to the students of various degree courses in the Science, Arts and Commerce streams. With the commencement of BA English Language and Literature Degree Programme in 2014, the department transitioned into the status of a core department. With a track record of six decades of unblemished service under the efficient leadership of veteran English teachers, the department has established itself as one of the most important segments of learning in the college. Besides improving the communicative skills of the students, the department has been playing a constructive role in character-formation, development of personality and professional competence.
The cherished dream of an enlightened society ideally depends on quality education. Driven and inspired by this proven fact, the community of the Diocese of Alleppey made its resolute entry into the field of higher education.
