    Although The Department of ENGLISH came into existence with the founding of the College in 1972, it was refurbished with the introduction of the three-year integrated BA ENGLISH program in June 2007.Our very First Batch with only three units of LITERAURE IN ENGLISH passed out in April 2010 with 100% Results and 02 Distinction Students and since then we have struck at 100% Results, our Benchmarking. We introduced BA with Entire Six Units of English in 2015. By the end of The Decennial Year in June 2017, we introduced the Post Graduation Course MA in ENGLISH. Indeed we are extremely proud that we are the last of the only four Colleges in Goa to introduce the LITERAURE IN ENGLISH ENTIRE PROGRAM and the FIRST to introduce the MA in ENGLISH, the PG Program.

    From the workload of one and a half faculty in 2007, we are as many as Seven Full Time Faculty Members in 2019, emerging to be the largest Department in the ARTS STREAM with the PG PROGRAM. Until 2010, the ENGLISH Teachers from various parts of Goa commuted to the port town of Vasco-Da-Gama to teach ENGLISH in various Secondary and Higher Secondary Schools. Today the town boasts of offering several Good English Teachers to its Educational Institutions and to the surrounding places like Sancoale, Pilar, Taleigao, Verna, Margao, Sanguem and to the other States like Kerala, Maharashtra and Karnataka. One feather in our cap is that one student of our very First Batch Ms Poorwa Naik has been appointed as the faculty member of The Department of English, Goa University. The other student Mr William D’Souza holds a regular post in our own College. The third student Ms Ruvina Khan is an upcoming Journalist working for The Times of India.The fourth Outstanding student of MA in English Ms Cinderella Bhandare Sequeira is a Philosophy faculty (NET cleared) in Parvatibai Chowgule Autonomous College, Margao. Several others teach in the Higher Secondary and Secondary Schools. Some are event Managers, Lawyers, Press Reporters, and so on. The Placement is indeed 100%.
