The UG Department of English was started in the year 1982 to meet the local demand for standards in keeping with those of the city, though the Department of English has been functioning since 1964 when the college was founded. The Department enjoyed the special status, along with three other colleges under Bharathiyar University, of experimenting with the vocational stream of functional English under the auspices of the University Grand Commission in the early nineties, which, since then, has flourished providing job-oriented courses within the purview of English Language and Literature. A full-fledged English Language Laboratory was established 8 years ago to shape the gift of the gab for both the teacher and the taught. The PG Department of English is about to be started in order to further widen the intellectual horizon of the youth, both urban and rural.
