About The History Department


The department of History, Barasat College, launched its journey in 1988 as general subject with only two part time teachers. In 1989 a full time post was sanctioned and the department marched ahead for pretty long time as general subject only. It obtained approval for introducing History as honours subject in 2001.Since then the History department has been presenting a perfect instance of teaching and learning within the parameters of Calcutta University and later West Bengal State University in 2008. At present the department is run by four lecturers, Prof. Kumkum Sengupta,M.A, M.Phil, Bholanath Mandal, M.A, M.Phil, Ph.D, Prof. Manas Bisay, M.A, and Prof. Mousumi Chakraborty ,M.A. In addition to their academic responsibilities, the faculty members are always ready to render all possible assistance and guidance to students within and outside the college campus.

Departmental Activities

Departmental meetings are held in regular intervals to discuss academic matters. The Department also keeps in touch with guardians of Honours students and their suggestions and advises are sought and parent teacher meetings are held at least twice a year to exchange views on the progress and problems if any, of their wards. With happy memories of last academic year, let us buck up with all earnestness to make the next one more eventful in the field of academic excellence as well as creativity. True to our Departmental motto “Let us keep on our endless journey from darkness to the light of knowledge.”
