History

The department has a rich tradition of all-round development of students. The approach is absolutely student centric. They are encouraged to develop a spirit of enquiry in all facts of daily life, not to mention their own cultural heritage and background. The department leaves no stone unturned to break the barriers of chalk and talk and makes learning a pleasant experience, with seminars, workshops, tutorials and group discussions as part of it. Honours in History was introduced in the year 2002. Earlier, Mrs Oindrila Chakraborty and Miss Sharmila Chanda have served this department. Presently, the Department has a strength of five teachers who keep up to this tradition.
