HOD's Message

Adhering to the Jesuit mission of preparing students to be men and women for and with others, Department of English facilitates young and enthusiastic learners who come into the portals of Loyola College to develop right attitude, sharpen language skills and gain knowledge of literature to meet their career goals and live up to the expectations of the society. Socially relevant and industry related curriculum, technology enabled teaching and learning, comprehensive assessment system and career enhancement programmes such as NET/SET preparation classes are but some key indicators the department has initiated to actualize the above stated mission.

General English Programmes in particular are geared up towards imparting not simply much required language skills but employability skills such as soft skills, English for new technologies, technical writing etc. as well to ensure their effective communication and career options.

Department has fortunately been endowed with a team of faculty ever dedicated to the task entrusted and willing to walk an extra mile to accompany these students in their odyssey of personality development and placement. Hence, I envisage a promising future for all our students especially in the context of interest being revived in the field of Arts in general and English Literature in particular.
