Introduction
The Department of English was established in 1962 and is one of the oldest language departments in the University of Mumbai.

Since, its inception the Department has played an important role in establishing relevant specializations such as English Language Teaching, American Literature, Gender Studies, Politics Ideology and English Studies.

The Department has now set forth to project itself as a Centre of Excellence and introduced two specialized Honours programmes in addition to its regular M.A. Programme. The M.Phil. programme has also been re-vamped to include courses such as writing for the media, creative writing and translation studies.
