Department of English,
No nation has a slightest idea that it should be left at the mercy of fate and there is no exception in our case. Reports currently appeared in the electronic and print media suggest that the great number of students fail to qualify competitive examinations. The main reason is that they (students) have no command on the discipline of English. Ok. Take it for granted. But to cry out such deficiency does not serve our purpose. No doubt results are every frightening/ poor therefore frustration and embarrassment prevail. This is the irrefutable fact. But why this happens. This why can prepare us to carve our ways for success?
Definitely we are on the wrong trail and our approach is negative. We spare no chance to involve ourselves in obnoxious activities. Ultimately negative impact on the society appears. The least is not only this but our economic bonanza is at the stake while there is no doubt that the media depicted the picture that is true. Now it is the turn of our society to build the prime rose path way or dig a fit for our generation.
No doubt, there will be many obstacles to subvert your program but your zeal and determination would be the first and foremost duty beside to create, the sense of responsibility, all out support and vital structure for its unopposed implementation. We must prepare ourselves with the creation of self-governing high level strategic authority, free from bureaucratic, ceremonial, procedural bottlenecks with its own budgetary and directorial mechanism and that should be ready to give impetus in every and any way.
This is obvious that about fifty countries speak English, while majority of the world population study it. Surely, about 2 Billion people communicate in English with interest. The importance, however, of this language is cross-border trade. The need of English stands very vivid globally. Business increases because of the communication in English and thus life changes. Ultimately an upward trend occupies the graph.
Today, we say without any hesitation that we are living in a global village, and everyday explosion of knowledge is the common phenomenon here. This is an undeniable fact that man role is played by the print and electronic media while this is another fact that most of their activities are in English. Therefore, it has a capacity to create harmony among the community of nations.
The bilingualism I mean the knowledge of mother tongue and English. We should not forget that the west especially America are still leading the world in every spheres of life whereas Americans are recognized as the English speaking nation.
It becomes very essential when industry, science and etc- are to be considered indispensible for any nation while this is needless to say that the nations who excel in English occupy the world market, jobs, contracts and there is no second opinion in this regard that English firmly accommodates its expert.
I think nobody will deny the fact that it triggers the self respect, and infuses confidence comparatively more than a person who either speaks English incorrectly or does not speak at all. This is besides the well-come gesture of national and international firms. They prefer a person who is capable to speak and write English, with ease.
Therefore, for English learning are should delve deep and absorb oneself. We endeavor to do so.
This department started functioning with the inception of the University. It started with the handicap of teachers who do not have any political, personal and sabotaging mentality.
Keeping all this in view and the dearth of quality English language teachers/professionals the department vowed to face the music of the time though it seems that we have taken the bull by the horn. Therefore we thought that odds are the inseparable part of human existence and the change of milieu would be the self-imposed pledge. The University authority provided an all out support to turn our obsession into reality.
Present this is a full-fledged department. There are classes right from BS English First year to four-year program. Whereas this is heartening to note that the competent authority gave signal of ‘Go’ for MA English in the morning hours. Last but not the least there is a good news that the department has a program in the pipe line regarding M. Phil & PhD in the days to come. Therefore interested candidates prepare themselves. Wait for the fine morning when the dawn will break with the fragrance of announcement for the promised agenda
To help students see themselves as professionals, as part of a discipline with skills and abilities valuable in the business, teaching, publishing, or post-graduate work.
The learners will be facilitated to explore and apply the wider range of opportunities in the discipline for effective global communication keeping pace with the advancement, fully supported by modern tools.
After passing out students will be able to bring some change in the society and they get benefit on merit. The tendency of research and communication is an important component of teaching and learning process. Resultantly, the societal setup would provide them job. Then professional skills will take places, simultaneously.
