Department of History

About the Department

The Department has a history as old as the College. It boasts of a team of bright young scholars who are devoted, apart from teaching assignments to other serious academic pursuits with acclaimed national and international publications to their credit. They are invited as Guest Lecturers and Resource Persons to Universities and institutions of the state and abroad as well. The Department has a small but rich seminar library and a wall magazine for the students. The students have an almost hundred per cent success rate at the University exams, and many score high rank at the same.

Message of the H. O. D.

Dr. Madhusree ChattopadhyayWith a rich legacy of history and a team of fresh, active and enthusiastic teachers, the department aims to bring in future more research projects, organize departmental, national and student seminars and build up a specialized and well-stocked seminar library. Of late, a project of digitization of old/rare books of the College for an archive has been launched for the first time by the department. We encourage student-teacher interaction. Teaching with utmost sincerity is our priority.
