About the Department
Department of Bengali Language and Literature (Bangabhasha-O-Sahityabibhag) has 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 courses were introduced in the department, under the affiliation of University of Calcutta. Now the honours and general classes are running with the affiliation of West Bengal State University, Barasat.
Every year about 300 students enroll their names in honours class. Actually 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 2013.
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.
