    Department of English

    About :

         The history of Ahmednagar College’s English Department dates back to 1947, the year in which the College was founded by the late Dr.B.P Hivale. At the time of its founding the College had only two faculties--Arts and Science. Of the first sixteen faculty members of the College, only one belonged to the subject of English and that was the late Prof. M.V. Ghaskadbi, who efficiently headed the department for over thirty years. He was the Founder-Head of the department who joined the College in response to Dr. Hivale’s invitation.

    When the College started functioning in 1947, the Department had only to cater to the needs of the Intermediate students. With the starting of undergraduate programs in 1949, the responsibility of teaching English to a large number of rural students, with a poor background of the language, to pursue the subjects of their choice fell on the Department. The scope of the Department became wider with the starting of postgraduate courses in various subjects, including English, in the 1950’s. At the moment the Department fulfills the academic needs of hundreds of students representing the faculties of Arts, Science, Commerce and Computer Science.
