The Department of English is one of the nine Departments that constituted the Andhra University Post Graduate Centre that was started in 1967. Even at the time of starting, the Department offered by way of innovation and experimentation a new specialization, i.e., Commonwealth literature, the first Department in an Indian University to have made the bold venture. Since then the Department has successfully diversified the courses and added new and innovative specializations, covering the entire gamut of Literatures available in English and English translation, be it from America, Russia, Europe, Africa, Asia, New Zealand, West Indies, Canada, Australia, without at the same time losing its basic character. Keeping pace with the times New Literatures written in English have acquired enough space in the Department
