Postgraduate courses were introduced in 2013-2014 to meet the rising requirement of students to master the literature via language. Because the majority of the students are from rural areas and have limited communication skills and understanding of English, the department values and utilize a student-centered pedagogical style that will help them to achieve professional and career competence. We are always challenging our students who are on the outskirts of society to make a space for them by tackling their own challenges that are somehow related to the world.
