About The Department

This being a new college , initial toddler journey of this department began in May , 2015 when the first honours batch took admission . The department had three new teachers as well , Dr Prantik Hazra , Mr. Mintu Deyashi and Dr. Tuhin Subhra Sarkar ( Assistant Professors , WBES) . Not withstanding the initial infrastructural inadequecies , students were ably guided by them . Dr. Prantik Hazra was the first faculty member and acted as first head of the department .
