The Department of English was instituted at Government College Mananthavady in 1981 along with the establishment of the College. The college commenced Under Graduate Programme in English Language and Literature in 1993 paving way for the formal setting up of the Department of English. This is the only Government College in Wayanad district affiliated to Kannur University that is offering BA in English Language and Literature.  18 batches have graduated from the department until 2013. Our students have become the ambassadors of the rich legacy and heritage of the culture and education imparted by Government College Mananthavady across the world. Since its inception, the department has been playing a key role in bettering the English education of the people of Wayanad, augmenting the reputation of GCM and enhancing the employability and worldview of the students.
