Department of Philosophy

The College offers both Honours and General B.A. courses in Philosophy. The Honours courses include such diverse topics as principles of reasoning and argumentation, nature of mind, political and social structures, moral principles, nature of reality etc.

Studying Philosophy leads to skill development through dialogue or argumentation and analysis. This gives students an edge in job examinations and interviews as well as at the workplace. Such job profiles include (but not restricted to) non-technical Govt. posts (e.g. civil service), private sector (service industry), teaching, business (HRM) etc. The student also develops appreciation of different perspectives on the same issue which serves her well both at the workplace and in personal life.

Even if philosophy was not a part of the applicants’ school curriculum, she can still take up the course. The subject is taught in both Bengali and English medium.

The department has 3 full-time and 1 guest teachers with specialization in different areas. The student-teacher ratio of the department is among the best in the college.

Students of the department have consistently scored well in University examinations. Apart from securing 1st division every year for the last 5 years and beyond, some recent ex-students have secured university rank as well.

The department has its own separate library. It has also started organizing talks by experts from other colleges/Universities for the benefit of students. Students can also display their creativity by contributing articles/posters in the departmental magazine Dristi.

Department of English


The Department of English offers the three-year undergraduate Honours course in English Literature, of the University of Calcutta. The coursework consists primarily of reading and writing about literary texts, including poems, short stories, novels, plays and essays prescribed in the university syllabus.

Though we have to function broadly under the curricular guidelines set by the Calcutta University and follow the syllabi set by it, we have evolved and applied case– and context– specific innovative practices in the implementation of this curricula. For example, we often organise our classes into smaller interactive groups with set-tasks to encourage independent thinking and creativity on the one hand, and develop the spirit of teamwork on the other. We also try to put students with better academic skills into leadership positions within the class. Weaker students thus have the opportunity also to learn from their classmates through peer teaching. This practice is often highly effective. Audio-visual media are regularly used to reduce the tedium of traditional teaching methods. Films based on plays and novels taught in class are often screened to enhance comprehension. Discussion classes follow the screenings. Audio/Video recordings of plays/poems are often used during teaching.


Our results reflect the overall outcome trends in our subject area. Though First Class grades are very rare in English, we have had a fair share of them in our section over the years. Since English is largely used as a second language in India, lack of adequate language skills often hinder the progress of our students in the initial stages. Results improve in the second and the third years as language proficiency improves with practice. We are very happy to announce that a state–of–the–art Language Laboratory will become functional this year to look after the language needs of our students.


The Department has, at present, two teachers in full-time posts, one teacher in a part-time post and two guest–lecturers. All our teachers have Master's degrees in English. Professor Mou Chatterjee has a PhD and Professor Rajiv Roy is pursuing PhD research at the Centre for Social Sciences, Calcutta. The student-teacher ratio is approximately 1:10. Our teachers have a wide variety of interests and take part in various academic and extra-academic activities. Professor Dr. Mou Chatterjee has a keen interest in sports, choreography, music and dramatics. She always takes lead roles in organizing cultural and sports activities in the college. Professor Rajiv Roy, the current Head, is the shift's go–to person for all Information and Communication Technology (ICT) related queries. He sets up and manages our departmental platforms on social networking websites. The department uses these platforms extensively to keep in touch with, help and counsel both its present and former students. Professor Sraboni Chakraborty, an ex-student of this college, knows the pulse of this institution better than anybody else. She keeps close track of our students' academic progress and believes in result-oriented teaching. She, also, currently, looks after the department's budding seminar library.


Our current intake capacity is 56. Out of these 56 seats, 20 are reserved for students from various Scheduled Castes, Tribes and Other Backward Castes, in keeping with the reservation norms of the Union and the State governments. Since English truly transcends class, caste or cultural barriers in India, we normally get students from a wide spectrum of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Though a large majority of our students are from the middle classes, we also, always, get at least a few from economically disadvantaged sections, who go on to avail various concessions and/or scholarship-schemes made available for them in the college.

Our students have always played prominent roles in the co-curricular activities of the college. Most of them go on to pursue higher degrees in universities both within and outside West Bengal. Many of them are doing very well in various professions including teaching, journalism, fashion and interior designing, event management, choreography, aviation and advertising. Many are also currently preparing for competitive examinations for entry into various government services including the IAS. Our Final Year students often receive very good job offers in campus interviews organized by the Career Counseling Cell of the college.

Department of Geography (B.A General)

Geography is the study of the Earth, its atmosphere, human beings, floras and faunas and all the physical and cultural features of the Earth. Moreover, Geography is a science that deals with the description, distribution, and interaction of the diverse physical, biological, and cultural features of the Earth's surface. It is a multidisciplinary subject.

Seth Anandram Jaipuria College (Morning Shift) offers a General Degree Course in this subject. Under the new Choice Based Credit System, the General Degree Courses open up more career avenues than Honours Courses. The new curricular structure is, in fact, perfectly suitable for students who wish to sit for the most valued national and state level competitive examinations(IAS, IFS, IPS, WBCS, etc.).

Our department has a shining faculty, and there are many reasons to choose Geography for a career:
▪ We have a well equipped laboratory with several instruments, maps, images and models.
▪ We offer individual attention to our students.
▪ We give regular class assignments/tests to our students to keep them updated and always in the loop.
▪ We organize annual educational field-tours for hands-on experience in the subject.
▪ We offer an interactive; ICT based teaching-learning experience throughout our academic sessions.
▪ We also keep in touch with the parents/guardians of our students through frequent parent-teacher meetings.
▪ Many of our ex-students have found fulfilling careers in government and corporate jobs
