Department of Education

The Department of Education started in the year 1961 for the Undergraduate students of the College with Dr. (Ms.) D. Phukan as the Head of the Department. In the initial years all the teachers of the Department also assisted the B.Ed. College of St. Mary's to teach the general papers of the B.Ed. course. The Department has continuously ventured into several activities and programmes within and outside the College with an aim to bring benefit to the students of the College as well as the society as a whole.

The Department has at present 4 full time teachers against sanctioned posts.
