Department of English
The Dept. of English in St. Dominic’s College came into existence along with the establishment of the college in 1965 as a junior college with various Pre degree batches. Later , when the college was upgraded to a first grade college with several U G courses, the dept.was assigned the task of teaching Part 1 English to these Undergraduate courses. The Dept. became a full-fledged one in 1999 when a U G Programme in English was sanctioned to the College by the Mahatma Gandhi University in the stream of Model II Vocational Module along with the conventional literature Module as part of the Govt. policy of vocationalising Degree Programmes. This was meant to be a foundational programme for those students who aspire for teaching along with their degree in English Language and Literature.
The Programme has a span of three years spread over six semesters. It includes an Internship of two weeks teaching practice at different schools and institutions to enhance their employability skills. The learning environment is enforced by earnest endeavours taken to ensure the quality and progress of students. Assignments and other extension activities are set in line with the academics. Bridge Courses, Remedial Classes, Peer Learning, Value Education Classes and Student Centric participatory learning equip our students to perform well. Literary Programs are regularly conducted to ensure the holistic development of students. Book Club, Film Review Club, Quizzard (monthly quiz program) and Phoenix (Skill Development Program) are conducted for students. Another innovative venture of the department is a half yearly Newsletter - The Lens,which promotes language, literature and creative perspectives. The department also offers specialized skill- based programs. Students who are employed in various prominent fields stands as a testimony to the efforts of the department in developing responsible, creative and socially sensitive citizens.
