Considered to be an indispensable part of higher education, the department of English has rendered its invaluable service in D.R. College since its inception in 1949. It is a full fledged department with Major courses, introduced way back in 1973. A good number of alumni of this department has been able to make its mark in different fields such as culture and literature, teaching, administration, journalism and the likes. Presently the department has five full time and two part time teachers. One of the faculty members has been pursuing Ph. D. courses in Tezpur University under FIP scheme of UGC. That leaves only four full time and two part time teachers to carry out the activities of the department.
