The School of Languages was established in the year 1994. It also functions as a supporting School to all the other Schools of the University. The program aims to introduce a wide range of Literatures in English and other Foreign Languages. At a primary level, this program aims to offer an opportunity to the students to read and respond to a large spectrum of novels, plays, and poetry with associated genres. At a secondary level, the students will be exposed to wider socio-cultural and political issues in relation to contemporary literature. Intensive programs at the under-graduate level would serve as an excellent foundation for students who want to pursue an in-depth study.
