About the Department

Due to the growing interest in studying geography among students, the Geography Department was established in 2002. It was initially established as a General subject, then in 2005, the first Geography Honours programme was initiated. The courses in this department are affiliated to The University of Burdwan.  There were once two rooms and a small laboratory in the initial phase of development. The geography department has improved along with advancements in college facilities. In 2011, a large laboratory cum teachers’ room was established and Remote Sensing based computer laboratory was started in 2014. The department has now been shifted to the newly constructed Annex Building 1st Floor in 2021 with modern facilities and amenities. The department now has a separate general laboratory, a lab for RS-GIS, a smart classroom, high-speed internet connectivity, digital printing, and a large inventory of instruments. The faculty at the department is outstanding in both teaching and research, and they are all very energized and enthusiastic. In its twenty-year history, this department has generated some extremely bright young minds who have made contributions to a variety of societal fields.
