About the Department


Department of Geography, Bijoy Krishna Girls’ College has a rich history, where Undergraduate Programme was running successfully since the beginning (i.e. General course from 1966 and Honours Course from 1981).  Reputed faculty members, specialized in different branches of geography, used to teach here, and along with the active assistance of a few non-teaching staffs, this department quickly climbed the peak of popularity in terms of academic credentials. Since then, an idea was floated to attach a Post-Graduate Department with it, to provide a fillip to meaningful teaching-learning process and bolster academic research. Finally, this department started to offer a full-time two years programme i.e. Master in Science degree in Geography from 2015. Currently, it offers two Special Papers, namely, Population and Welfare Geography (since 2015) and Regional Planning (since 2017).
