FROM HOD’S DESK:

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Women's education is crucial for the development and progress of the society. Our goal is to give a quality, and virtue based education to women and to bring in them the potential to become strong leaders, role models, and weapons of change in the society through the power of education.

Our department motivates the students to tailor their individual understanding of language and literature, and facilitate them in responding to their academic and professional needs.  I wish all our students continued growth in knowledge, and success in all their educational and professional endeavours ahead.
