Introduction

Since its formation in 1975, the Department of English continues to enjoy excellent repute, setting up high standards of academic excellence and innovation.Employing a significant number of PhD and Post-doc faculty members, the Department of English has been committed to the goal of delivering quality education by combining the latest knowledge in the fields of literature and linguistics with a learning atmosphere that fosters creativity and critical thinking. Believing in the dictum of education/learning with responsibility, the courses taught at Department of English not only educate its students in the study of literary giants like William Shakespeare, John Milton, William Wordsworth, Jane Austen, T.S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Earnest Hemingway, Robert Frost, Franz Kafka, these courses also employ contemporary literature and theoretical frameworks to engage with the present-day intra/international geo-political and socio-economic concerns like wars, genocide, economic disparity, violence, globalization, colonization, and women’s issues. Taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the teaching of literature(s) in English, the Department of English also has the distinct honour of being home to some of the leading voices in the field of linguistics. Given the increasing application of linguistics in modern technologies and media discourses, our courses in linguistics are continually updated to keep at par with the demands of this emergent market. The in-house departmental library equipped with the latest books in the field of linguistics and English language teaching, in particular, is a testament to this. The faculty at Department of English comprises of a significant number of foreign-qualified teachers, who have had the privilege of studying at some of the top-class universities of the world (including the USA and UK) by winning prestigious awards including Fulbright, Commonwealth and the HEC scholarships. The Department of English offers a wide range of courses, both in literature as well as linguistics, through a variety of degree programs and short courses ranging from BS to PhD. The students are continuously engaged and challenged through a host of curricular and co/extra-curricular activities such as quizes, seminars, dramatic activities, tutorials and conferences. The students of our Department have access to the Higher Education Commission’s digital library, an in-house departmental library and the Lincoln Corner, established inside the University’s Central Library. The Department’s academic richness results in the production of quality human resources. Our graduates play a vital role in the socio-economic development of the country. Similarly, they have valuable accomplishments to their credit in foreign lands. Common professions they pursue include Teaching and Research, Civil Services (through CSS), Provincial Management Services (PMS/former PCS), Media, Armed Forces (Instructors), Judiciary (after having a degree in law as well). Becoming a Call Center’s representative, or a Content Writer (in the context of website development) are few of the newly emergent avenues where our graduates have been able to successfully apply their skills. Moreover, Middle East’s educational institutions attract our graduates through handsome packages. It is relevant to mention that many of our past students have gained recognitions as poets, writers and media anchor persons.
