Since then we have been teaching here the syllabus for B.A. Honours and Master Degree in English Language and Literature. We are very much dedicated to the principles of World university standard and in the light of that our teaching programme has been framed.
For teaching the English Language we follow the latest method of teaching like Communicative approach by our teachers who have the linguistic and IELTS background.
