The Department of English came into existence in 1982, the year of inception of the college. From its status as a language department that taught just Part I English to Pre-Degree and Degree students, it evolved to be one of the major departments of the college in 2004, offering B.A. Communicative English with an initial strength of 20 students. KNM Government Arts and Science College, Kanjiramkulam is the only government college under the purview of the University of Kerala to offer B.A. Communicative English course. Currently, the department offers undergraduate programme in Career Related BA English & Communicative English under the CBCS System.

The department has seven faculty members, around 100 students, and three smart classrooms. We are proud to have to our credit four university rank holders. Moreover, our students excel in arts and sports and a few of the 2012 batch created a short film “Once God Lived Here” as part of their on-the-job training (video available on Youtube). The department has been successfully conducting 2-day national seminars every year since 2011-12 and has organized interaction sessions with professors from Canterbury Christ Church University, UK in 2011-12 & 2012-13. We are also actively engaged in the activities of the Literary and Theatre Clubs and have staged 3 dramatic adaptations till date. The department also has an ‘English Theatre’ to foster film appreciation.
