Welcome to the Department of Bengali

The Department of Bengali of the college is one of the oldest ones having completed fourteen years of General teaching and twelve years of Honours teaching. The young Department has a wonderful past and very enthusiastic present paving the way for the impressive days of the future. It nurtures the untamed youth that manifests itself in diverse forms. The distinguished professors who have served or are serving this department over the years, try to make a safe haven for learning and cooperation. A lively academic and cultural ambience and a very cordial teacher-pupil relationship have always been and hopefully will be the distinctive characteristic of the department. Due to severe shortage of funds and space the department does not have a separate seminar/departmental library but the central library has more than 1000 titles dedicated to Bengali Language and Literature studies. Within the strict, limited capacity the department tries to organize students‟ seminar, workshops and movie screenings to facilitate the students.

For teaching purpose, the most common method, used by the departmental teachers, is chalk and talk. The departmental teachers use power point presentations, arrange movie and documentary shows. We have one smart class room and other class rooms. Apart from delivering lectures and distributing class notes, students are given different web links to collect study materials (YouTube, Digital Library & Google Classroom). Department prepares a semester wise lesson plan for proper teaching and to complete the allotted syllabus in due time. Students are also encouraged to participate in class seminar and group discussions on a regular basis. As a part of Internal Assessment (10 mark for each Honours & General paper) we take 2 class tests for each honours paper and 2 class test for each General paper.

The Bengali (Hons.) undergraduate course is designed to introduce students with the various traditions of Bengali literature and language. The different courses of the Bengali undergraduate Programme is created in such a fashion that the students not only get an idea and taste of the literature that developed in Bengali soil but also of other Bengali trends and traditions in the world.

  • The Programme tries to make the students understand the different periods of Bengali literature and explore how creative resources are used in poetry, fiction, prose and drama. It tries to focus on Literary/Cultural studies which help to develop intellectual acumen and a better understanding of human life and experience.
  • The UG syllabus under CBCS also includes Indian Classical Writings, Indian Bhasha literatures along with the contemporary literary crosscurrents. This will help students develop their analytical and argumentative skills and also endow them with the knowledge of their own literary tradition – both classical and contemporary Indian Bhasha
  • The main rationale of the Programme is to acquaint students, who have just stepped into the threshold of higher education, with an overall idea of literature, develop their critical insights, understand the reception of texts and make them familiar with scholarly
  • The new syllabus of studying literary and cultural texts is structured in such ways that it helps students think deeply about socio cultural issues of race and It helps to develop the reasoning faculty of the mind and understand the cross cultural issues of influence and reception.
  • The Programme also helps to develop skills of writing in Bengali which will posit students in good stead in the job market.

Our department has one sanctioned post against substantive vacancy. At present our department has one full time teacher against substantive post, and two fulltime state aided college teachers.

Some students opt for higher studies and they are advised to take admission in reputed institutions like VU, RBU, NSOU etc for conducting their post graduate, M.Phil and PhD.
