The department was established under the mentorship of Dr. R.P Singh and Dr. U.K. Dwivedi; both are eminent scholars of literature. The landmark achievement of the Department of English was the formation of Language Centre and Language lab which flourished under the efficient guidance of the founders specially Dr. U.K. Dwivedi, but later this centre became an independent entity.
