The Department of Philosophy started with the pass course at the undergraduate level in 1965 with one Lecturer Prof. Asit Sen. Then Dr. Amarnath Bhattacharyya joined the Department. The affiliation for the Honours Course was granted by Calcutta University in the academic session 2004-2005. The course has an intake capacity of 30 students.

The students are sincere, serious and dedicated and take part in various competitions viz. sports, debates, quiz etc. organized by the college. We sincerely hope to progress in the pursuit of excellence. We take class tests and tutorial classes on regular basis. Group discussions are also held which benefit the students immensely. Students contribute their creative skills in the Departmental Wall-Magazine.
