About the Department

"The function of Education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically." These words of Martin Luther king Jr. sum up what the Department of English, Basirhat College, is striving to achieve: enabling young minds to soar high with the wings of knowledge. The journey that began in the year 1957 is moving forward with increasing strength and vigour. Along with traditional genres of English literature we make our students aware of the latest developments in the field of literature. This happens because the faculty members themselves are experts in diverse fields of literature and language. Furthermore, this department doesn't only aim to teach the students, it sincerely provides a constant support to each one of them.
