Department of English

Away from fretful stir of the city, amidst a lush green nature there stands a seat of learning Vivekananda College. Department of English is as old as the institution itself. Starting its journey as an Inter-Mediate college, the institution as well as the department has been upgraded from time to time. At present our English department offers honours, general pass, compulsory pass and Alternative pass at under graduate level. It is a matter of pleasure that now our department also teaches English at the post-graduate level (Distance Mode) of Vidyasagar University, Midnapore. Our intake capacity is fifty and selction is made strictly according to merit every year. Rate of success of our students is as high as ninety percent and frequently some of our students are awarded first class.

Department of English organizes seminars and discussions both sponsored by the University Grants Commission and individually. Beside those seminars organized solely by the department from time to time, we had already arranged as many as three State and National Level seminars and to our credit, we have three publications each one edited by the-then head of the department Dr. Pranati Duttagupta. Department of English also arranges Fresher's welcome, Teacher's day and annual picnic.
