Department of English

Brief Profile of the Department

The Department of English, Tripura University starting its journey from the College Tilla (Agartala) Campus twenty years back has grown into a full-fledged Department today. With a sanctioned Faculty strength of 4 catering to a seat capacity of 30 students in those days, the seat capacity has been raised to 100 now, keeping in mind the growing demands for higher studies in English. The number of sanctioned posts has gone up to 9; the actual Faculty strength is 5. With the conversion to Semester system in 2008, the English syllabus has been made up to date and at par with that of other Central Universities. The new syllabus thus incorporates a wide range of Optional Papers from the Literature, Language and Translation Studies. The students admitted in this department come not only from within Tripura and Tripura University, but also from other North Eastern states as well as West Bengal. The Department is led by a young band of dedicated teachers who encourage ingenuity and creativity in both academic and co-curricular fields.
