Department of English

About the Department:

The Department of English, Bengtol College came into existence in the year 1997. At the initial stages the department offered General English and Alternative English courses under ‘Three Years Degree Course’ (TDC) of Gauhati University. The Gauhati University granted affiliation to both the courses in the academic session 1999-2000. The major course in English was started in the year 2007 and the Gauhati University granted affiliation to the major course in the session 2007- 2008 with its order No. EC.Res.No.R/EC-7/2009/206 (1) dated 31-08-2009. In the beginning year the classes of the department were held at Bengtol Higher Secondary School building as the College did not have its own building at that time. Later on, the classes were shifted to the present permanent campus in the year 1998. Since the year 2017 the college is affiliated to newly established Bodoland University and accordingly the department of English is offering the course designed by the new University. Further, the same University has permitted the English department of the college to offer post-graduate (PG) course in English from the academic session 2017-18 in order to meet the increasing need of the students’ community.

Since its inception, the department has been struggling to facilitate holistic development of its students. Besides teaching English language and literature to develop the communicative competence/performance of the students in English as well as to develop their creativity, the Department has a wider aim to inculcate human / cultural and intellectual values to younger generations. The faculty has been working towards that end with full commitment.
