About The Bengali Department


The Bengali Department of Barasat College is a primordial one that startedfunctioning since 1988-89. The Honours course was introduced in the year2001. The department follows the CBCS system of education under the affiliation of West Bengal State University. The students of Bengali Language and Literature are offered the knowledge of Bengali grammar, history of Bengali literature. The texts students explore give them multiple opportunities to discuss and reassess their own values and beliefs. These act as a compass in life as students grow up. They develop a sense of individuality and creativity, as they develop their own opinions about issues in their texts, they learn to consider multiple perspectives and understand the complexity of human nature and therein lies the value of the subject – it prepares one for the ambiguities of life, to take uncertainties in one’s stride. A strong group of faculty members work relentlessly not only in disseminating knowledge amongst the young learners but tirelessly work towards the growth and development of the young minds. Presently the Department is run by five Lecturers, Prof. Haimanti Dasgupta, M.A., B.Ed, Dr. Prateeti Bhattacharya, M.A., P.hD, Dr. Lena Ghosh, M.A., PhD, Prof. Manasi Mondal, M.A. and Prof. Surya Bhattacharya, M.A. Through classroom activities and activities outside the classroom opportunities are thrown open to them leading to polishing their talents, gathering experiences and building their personalities. A holistic approach to learning ensures to fully activate all aspects of a learner’s personality for more effective and comprehensive learning.
