The English Philology Department (EPD), one of the oldest and largest departments in the University, in its current form has only existed since 2011 and it encompasses directions for English language and English literature. It is the successor of the department of foreign languages (English, German, French) and later English Language Department headed by Professor Madona Megrelishvili. Throughout its existence, it has trained more than 2500 professionals and has made a huge contribution to introducing and developing new methods of teaching English language and literature and promoting intensive research in its specialist field. The department promotes advanced study and research in language teaching, linguistics and literature through a wide range of courses.
The success of the Department is almost entirely due to its highly qualified academic personnel. At present two Professors, thirteen Associate Professors, and seven Assistant Professors ensure that the highest levels of achievement are maintained within its Bachelor’s, Master’s and doctoral programmes.
The Department has diverse and productive international contacts resulting in students’ active involvment in exchange programmes and opportunities to foster the professional development of the staff through exchange visits.

It is noteworthy that, the Department offers the students a wide range of extracurricular activities. Interest groups and societies include a Students’ Research Group, an English Speaking Club, a Translators’ Group, an Annual International Conference on `British, American and Georgian Cultural Studies`, a Debate Club, and a Cinema Club. All Clubs assist our students to master the language and equip them with vitally important skills.
Any Georgian university would be exceptionally proud to claim the statistics regarding the employement of EPD graduates as its own. Our graduates are successfully employed in European, American and Asian universities as professors and associate professors to say nothing of Georgian Universities and state education bodies where they occupy leading positions at decision-making levels.
