Department of English

The Department of English has a college-wide outreach and offers not only BA English (Honours) studies but also numerous English papers across other disciplinary studies. The pedagogical method employed by the faculty aims at liberating learning and knowledge from the bounds of restricted model of text book teaching. We strive toward connecting the texts that students study to contexts and bringing about a more informed and sensitised position. Through classroom discussions, students learn to look at questions pertaining history and society from different ideological perspectives.

Numerous alumni of the English Department are now faculty members at the University of Delhi. Others are with media organisations, policy think-tanks, music bands, and many such places where the course in English literature empowers them to engage.
