Department of Bengali

About the Department

Department of Bengali Language and Literature (Bangabhasha-O-Sahityabibhag) started its journey from the year 1947. Initially the academic courses of this department were confined within the inter-mediate and pass classes. In the year of 1980-81, honours course was introduced in the department under the regulations of University of Calcutta. Now the honours and general classes are run and regulated by West Bengal State University, Barasat, as the college is now affiliated to WBSU.

Every year about 300 students enroll their names in honours class. A large number of students of this district take admission in the department. The department, especially has a great contribution in spreading the light of higher education among the girls of minority community of the Indo-Bangladesh Border Region. It is also evident from the demand ratio that, there is an increasing interest to study in the department. Due to this growing interest the department has introduced self-financed Post Graduate course in Bengali from the year 2012.Regular class lectures alongwith some seminar classes, organized by the department, are the main resources of learning. For some texts our faculty members often use the multimedia devices as well. Certainly it is an important and innovative tool used in such literature based subjects.

Head of the Department: Dr. Soma Pal Chaki.
