Regular film screening: In today’s increasingly interdisciplinary academic environment literature is no longer considered a stand-alone category; rather it has become part of a broader spectrum of cultural activities that includes film, theatre and other performance forms. Keeping this in mind the Department of English organizes screening of the film versions of different texts included in the syllabus.

Apart from all of these the department publishes a students’ wall magazine, organises students’ seminars and encourages students in their varied academic and cultural pursuit.
