The teaching-learning environment is enhanced by the use of smart classrooms and serious efforts are taken to guarantee that the teaching learning process is highly innovative and progressive, giving importance to problem based learning. We set in line with this approach through projects, assignments and other learning activities. Collaborative learning, remedial classes, mentoring and proper career guidance further ensure the all-round development of the students.
In addition to all this various extension and literary activities are regularly conducted

The Department, through various talks and seminars, tries to educate students in diverse ways and to develop insight among the students to critically examine literary texts and genres.
The faculty takes great care in creating a seminar circle among the students, through which they present seminars on modern literary trends and have discussions on them.
The Department also regularly manages to have Book rotation among students. Though Book rotation was not possible this year due to covid pandemic, the Department still managed to have virtual Book Rotation through e-books.
Creative Writing Sessions
Writing Sessions are conducted periodically to identify the talented students and to enhance the creativity among them and the publication of Manuscript Magazines.
The Department also provides a Certificate Course in Writing For Digital Media. The transformation and new demands that are placed on writers and content developers form the lynchpin of this course. Effective communication in journalistic contexts, understanding the increasingly altering tastes of audience and exploring how different media behaviour will help for creating better content for digital formats and environments, learning how to achieve balance and a careful blend of these features is the primary objective of this course.

The literary talents of our students are boosted up by giving them an opportunity for manifesting their creativity in the form of Manuscript Magazines. A Newspaper Club is also functioning here. It's a place where the students can voice their opinions, their ideas and ideals. It allows students to experience a variety of journalism types and to gain real experience that not only looks good on a resume, but can build confidence for any journalistic career.
Our students participate in University Youth Festival and short film competitions conducted by various organizations. We promote research aptitude in students by encouraging the students in participating and presenting papers in conferences and seminars. With eminent faculty members we are providing countless doors of job opportunities for our students. The miraculous world of literature sets them off on a journey across the mind's landscape. It's aim is to carve young girls into talented young women who can contribute to the development of society. Sailing in the sea of Literature "we turn not older with years, but newer everyday".
