The department of English has been running undergraduate classes since 1973 and the post graduate course since 1985 respectively. Earlier it was in the old Tehri which submerged due to the construction of the Tehri Dam. This department along with the other departments of the Campus was shifted to Badshahi Thaul in 1998. The aims and objectives of this department are to equip the students with a better skill of language written and spoken, so that they can have better job opportunities not only in the field of teaching, but also in the multimedia sector as well.
