The Department of English, Hazi A. K. Khan College sprouted its roots along with the establishment of the college in the year 2008. The central objective of this department is to facilitate our students to explore the world of literature as well as to enrich them with communication skills in English. The Department plays an active role in the co-curricular activities of the college. Students are encouraged to participate in different cultural events, webinars, seminars and other innovative programmes.
