The Department of English has been in our college as a part of academic discipline ever since the inception of the college. Earlier for more than two decades English was being taught as a language only. Realizing its importance our esteemed management introduced English as an optional subject in 1995. There were hardly ten students in the initial period. Now the strength has gone up to nearly 200. The result in optional English has always been more than 90% ever since its start.
Further our esteemed management ventured to start P.G in English in year 2004. We are proud to say that 5 batches of P.G students have passed out from the year 2004.
Our department has bagged three ranks in the Kuvempu University.
We are happy to say that our P.G Students here also bagged a rank in the autonomous syllabi. Mr.Shivaraj Bhixavarthimath has bagged the 1st rank in the M.A. English Autonomous syllabi.
We are extremely happy to record this fact that there has been a qualitative as well as quantitative progress in the department of English.
