Have you ever experienced the magic of words, the power of utterance? Undertaken a time travel that can take you back and forth through centuries, into the historic past and to the future? The study of literature promises all these and much more. It helps us realize the potency of words, the might of the pen. We all have heard about books that have changed perspectives, perspectives that have changed lives and lives that change the world. The objective study of characters and situations, of philosophy, are effective skills that help us sail through the voyage called life.

The department of English at Kanchrapara College is invested with highly qualified teachers who are willing to help their students navigate through the maze of life. We do not merely impart lessons in the classroom, but also act as mentors to our students. The Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) offers a variety of courses to choose from and the syllabus is as formulated by the affiliating University of Kalyani. Admission to the three years Honours and General degree courses is strictly on the basis of merit and students are expected to know the basics of English language and grammar. The college operates in two shifts, day and evening, and the English department is functional in both the shifts. However, the Honours course is offered only in the day shift.

The students of the department have consistently scored high grades in all university exams and are enthusiastic participants in all socio-cultural and academic events of the college. The alumni of this department have carved a niche for themselves in their respective careers. English Honours graduates may opt for post-graduation or research, paving their way for jobs in educational institutes or they may opt for jobs in administrative and civil services and in the print and audio-visual media.
