  About the Department:
'Without Literature, Life is Hell' -- Charles Bukowski
  Since the inception of the college in the year 1998, English Department started its journey with only Elective English for general students. Honours course was introduced in the Department in 2003, with one full-time teacher in the substantive post and one part-time teacher. Now the Department has 6 teachers to look after imparting the subject to more than 3000 students enrolled in Honours Program and Program courses.
Despite shouldering this huge responsibility with the shortage of teachers, the Department has constantly been engaged in experimenting with various teaching methodologies in making learning of English a joyous and purposeful experience for the students. Screening of films, organizing students centric seminars, the arrangement of invited lectures by faculties from other institutions are some of the key activities to supplement conventional teaching practices.

PRIORITY AREAS:
 With the introduction of CBCS syllabus by the University of North Bengal in 2018 session, the Department has reworked its priority areas following the changing academic environs in today's volatile socio-cultural clime. Technical writing skill, being one of the primary requisites of the employers, in this world of 'private economy', classes on language learning and writing skills is given additional importance for Program course students and are conducted by teachers having expertise in Language teaching.

OBJECTIVES:
 However, studies in English literature don't just prepare students for the workplace - they prepare them to embrace ideas and cultural ethos which will help them to strike bonhomie with others in a multicultural matrix. While our Program course incorporates experiential learning into our course offerings, our BA Honours program fuses traditional and global contents into it, helping students to be a global citizen with traditional moorings. Today, the English Department maintains its strong commitment to traditional areas of English study, promoting at the same time, issues related to cultural diversity, identity-formation, construction of gender and nation-building. The Honours Core course offers students a fine balance of traditional British literature courses, with Indian classical writings, American and Modern Indian literature with writing from other related areas such as Partition Literature, Popular Culture, Women's Writing and Children's Fiction.

LANGUAGE LABORATORY:
 Realizing the need for developing good communication skills for students coming from the vernacular background, the Department opened its exclusive language laboratory in the year 2019 and offers 'IT Enabled English Language Certificate Course'(IEELCC) which is compulsory for all first semester Core Course students. With 30 computers and a state-of-the-art setting, the language laboratory of the department has become ground zero for hyper-multimedia language education. Two specially trained teachers from the Department of English, Prof.Sanchita Das and Prof.Ishwar Darnel act as instructors and coordinators for this specially designed language course The Department has a plan to extend the scope of the course to the students of other departments from Jul 2020

WHY ENGLISH AT SSM?
 The department, through all its varied activities, propagates the idea that there's no substitute for what the regular teacher brings to the classroom. Classroom experiences should shift students from passive to active, maintaining their interest and promoting active participation. To ensure this our lesson-plans have ample scope for students' active participation in the classroom so that attending classes, rather than becoming a compulsion, becomes an outcome of motivation. Students participate in the student-centric seminar, group discussion and other literary activities. We also invite teachers from other institutions to deliver talks on various topics. Such invited talks aim to expose students to different teaching experience.

Departmental wall magazine Oracle is a platform for the students to showcase their literary skill. The aim of all this is to prepare students with analytical, critical, and communication skills so that after passing from this institution students can get opportunities of pursuing higher education in various disciplines or crack competitive examinations.

To bring back the culture of reading, the Department has a Reader's Club where under the tutelage of designated teachers students are encouraged to read various books and then take part in the discussion. This develops the critical thinking of the students.

The department encourages students and sometimes makes it compulsive for the students to participate in various literary and cultural competitions to showcase their creative potentials.

EMOTIONAL WELL BEING:
 Feelings of stress and anxiety are a part of life and the college students are not exempted from this. At the adolescence, stage stress can, at times, be overwhelming. Each person has different types of stressors. What bothers one student might not bother another. The department has an active mentor-mentee program where a group of students' emotional wellbeing is taken care of by a particular teacher. The department also encourages students to meet teachers personally in resolving personal issues.

 Our mission is to strengthen the liberal education of students by developing a deepened understanding of language and literacy, the value of critical reading and effective writing, and the richness of literature, past and present. We value teaching that will lead our students to participate in society as informed, responsible citizens.
