The importance of English is undeniable in the contemporary education. Veering away from being a mere colonial legacy, it is now an essential and definite component in global skill requirements, a criterion for progress and advancement in the present day world. While the language component hones up the students’ skill sets and enhances their employability, the literary component fosters critical thinking and promotes artistic appreciation in them. English is no longer the study of the literature but comprises a wide range of exciting areas of interest including film studies, gender studies, cultural studies, media studies etc. The quickening multidisciplinary of the subject makes it a very exciting subject to pursue, with several options to branch out academically and career wise.
