About the Programme

The Department of English of Usha Martin University had an inception in the year 2018.  The Department offers Ph.D. Programme in English and an undergraduate course in B.A. English.

The Department has been playing a crucial role providing the right impetus to the students to reach an advanced level of proficiency in the language. A wide selection of texts, including prose, plays, poetry collections and various non-fiction texts are imparted across all semesters and years to facilitate a greater sensitivity to the literary and cultural traditions of the language.

The Department of English is a team where members enrich the department with their collective contributions, strengths, and experiences. It is this sense of teamwork and willingness that helps us to offer a richer and diverse range of learning experiences to the students of this region who have a relatively lesser exposure to the language.
