A PREMIER COLLEGE IN WEST BENGAL, AFFILIATED TO WEST BENGAL STATE UNIVERSITY, NAAC
Accredited (Grade-‘B++’) 2nd Cycle, UGC affiliation under section 2F and 12B of the UGC Act
The journey of the Department of History started in 1996 with the introduction of Pass Course and six years hence forth the History Honours Course was introduced in 2002 under the University of Calcutta. However in 2009 this College and the Department changed the affiliation from University of Calcutta to newly opened West Bengal State University at Barasat.
At present five teachers are involved in teaching in the Department. Till date the Seminar library is furnished with about 150 books. Most of the teachers of the Department are not restricted to college work but they are also involved as Examiners, question paper setters of University conducted examinations.
In the last 3 years the percentage of successful students in the University Honours examination is over 80 percent.
The Department had successfully organized a National Seminar in 2011. Presently the history Department and English department in Collaboration with the Institute of Historical Studies Kolkata is getting ready to hold yet another two days National Seminar on the topic “ Partition : its Trauma and Triumph” in the college campus starting from 3 rd August.
Educational tours are conducted to inculcate interest in students. The students are very enthusiastic in co- curricular activities like quizzes and debate. Special lectures, workshops and awareness programmers are usually conducted to enrich student’s knowledge. A wall magazine “Chitralekha” is put up every year by students on different themes. “Uttaradhikar”, a Departmental magazine manifests the students’ creativity. An Historical Organisation by the name “Paschimbanga Itihas Samsad” selected our college as the venue for their 32 nd annual Conference. Through all these activities we hope that our students will be highly motivated in building a very successful and prosperous future.
