Swami Vivekananda said: “All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.” The Department of English is open-minded and inclusive in its approach. Every student is looked upon as an individual with a unique personality, treated with courtesy and respect, and trained to cultivate self discipline. The department focuses on personality development with emphasis on human values. Special interest is taken in counselling students and giving personal attention to slow learners and students from regional medium background.
The faculty makes sincere efforts to inculcate academic and professional ethics among the students. The faculty motivate students to use web resources to improve their communication skills and soft skills.
