Department of English
History of the Department:
The department of English at Career Convent Girls Degree College was started in 2004. A vibrant intellectual environment encompassing both teachers and students was painstakingly cultivated by the erudite faculty Dr. Ritu Saxena (H.O.D).
Teaching is the most basic form of engagement that the department believes, stretches into carefully planned tutorials. In addition to the traditional chalk and talk method classes, special interactive classes by applying group discussion, question-answer, and demonstration method, lectures through the use of technology-by means of slideshow presentation, YouTube Videos and e-content are arranged to encourage the students. Assignments are given from time to time to the students. The department also identifies slow learners and provides extra guidance through remedial classes. Besides the University Examination, student’s progression is maintained and supervised and the quality of their understanding is determined by Home Examination System. The Students remain engaged with the texts, literary and student’s enrichment programmes throughout the year. We encourage the students to participate in various co-curricular activities like- Debate Competition, Oration, Extempore etc.
To facilitate the smooth functioning of the department and to maintain the quality of academic discourse the department works efficiently and diligently in a humanitarian manner. The aim will always be to create a group of students who can appreciate the spirit of the nation though their reading of literature.
