DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH

 

The Department of English started functioning in the academic session 1970-1971, which was also the first academic session of Durgapur Government College (established in 1969). The Departmentplayed a key role in the entire Durgapur and the adjoining region as no other institution existed at that time to cater to the needs of those aspiring to study English literature at the undergraduate level. The first batch of students pursuing the Honours course in English comprised eleven students — five female students and six male students. Renowned teachers like Gouri Prasad Ghosh, Nilagrib Deb Roy, Debabrata Chatterjee, ChandreyeeNiyogi, have served the department. Dr. Tanuka Das and Dr. Devika Bose were the first lady teachers in English to join the department in 1981. Since MIL (Modern Indian Languages) is taught to all the students in the college, the actual student strength of the department would include the entire first year registered students of the college (Humanities, Science and Commerce). This public-funded educational institution, catering to students from different sections of the society,tries its best to offer quality education leading to brilliant performance of students. Quite a good number of students have been placed in various administrative and academic posts across the country and abroad. The faculty is engaged in various examination related works at the undergraduate level in the college and at the undergraduate and postgraduate level at universities. Seminars, educational tours, exhibitions along with excursions constitute some of the regular activities of the department.Faculty members have, from time to time, also served as members of Board of Studies and as members of Syllabus Committees instrumental in introducing vital changes in the English syllabus of the Honours course.
