The English Department of St Xavier’s College, Burdwan believes in the ideal of catering to the needs of every individual student to ensure all round personality development. Rather than imparting pure theoretical knowledge, the faculty members of the department believe in fostering a spirit of interest among students by making the subject as interesting as possible through the use of visual aids and other innovative modern techniques. We not only ensure creative interaction but also see to it that every student is provided with the opportunity and platform to voice his or her individual views. The faculty members with their experience, commitment and willingness to bring out the best from every student, believe in enriching themselves with contemporary knowledge of the relevant discipline. With suitable infrastructure, well equipped library and audio visual facilities the department of English attempts to materialize Shaw's vision of education as "a perfect medium to create the blueprint of a bright future through moulding of sensitive intellectual and responsive students."
