Md. Tariqul Alam
Head of the Department
It gives me much pleasure to say that the Department of English has begun its glorious journey as one of the leading faculties with the establishment of this University in 2012 at Paduar Bazar, Bishwa Road, Cumilla. The department is located at the sixth floor of the main building with all the classrooms adjacent to it. At present, there are three Lecturers, one Assistant Professor and a Professor working in the department. All the faculties are highly qualified, well-experienced and dedicated to teach and guide the students to be the worthy citizens of the country and for the future world. Our programme includes Honours four years, Masters one and two years. The syllabus is rich and updated and is approved by the UGC. It has been designed in keeping with the needs of the present day world. Seven batches of Honours and thirteen batches of Masters have successfully completed their courses. Many of them have been provided in different Professions in schools, colleges and other non-government organizations.
More often, the students of the department attend various workshops, seminars organized by the department in addition to other cultural and academic programmes. The English Language Club is run by the Department of English in collaboration with the students of other departments of the university. Truly, the English Department occupies an important position in the university because the students of other departments including CSE, BBA and Law are also learning English as the English language has achieved a unique place in the world geography. It is not only the medium of global communication but also the means of trade and commerce, science and technology, media and information, internet and web. A high proficiency in English is an essential precondition for further education and employment at home and abroad.
In short, the Department of English at Britannia University is a forward-looking department and committed to providing you with the best possible preparation for your future. So, I hope and expect that we will get all kinds of cordial cooperation from the honourable guardians of our students and other well-wishers of the country to translate our dream into reality.
I am looking forward to welcoming you.
