About Us
 
The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life—
.

This Platonic motto actuated a group of visionaries to contemplate starting an institution of higher learning in the educationally backward area of Assam way back in 8th July 1964. Bongaigaon College is the translated version of a lofty ideal. The College is situated 200 k.m. away from Guwahati, the capital city of Assam. Affiliated to Gauhati University, the most reputed University of the North –East, Bongaigaon College today can easily stake a claim to be one of the premier colleges in Assam.

The College with a campus spanning 8.46 hectors, offers +2 (Arts and Commerce), Under Graduate (B.A, B.Com., BBA and BMC) — both general and Major and Post Graduate (English) programmes apart from offering a vocational programme in Financial Accounting at the Under Graduate level .

Bongaigaon College has crafted a mission statement to offer an interactionist and value-based education in view of representation from various ethnic and community spaces in its rolls, stressing on the dialogic culturalism in approaching academic and intellectual areas disseminated in the class rooms. Moreover, the College perceives that the academic domain should be supported by consciousness enhancing extra curricular activities testing and enriching social and cultural sensibility of students. With its 3000 – strong student workforce and almost three scores of teachers, the College is committed to upholding the academic values it has scripted in its vision statement addressing both demands of humanist education and contemporary professional exigencies. .

 
YESTERDAY..
.

The College had its beginning thanks to a concerted enterprise and initiative of a host of starry-eyed, socially conscious individuals, most notably late Sitanath Brahmachowdhury, ex- M.P. and ex-President of Assam Sahitya Sabah, the late Bhabeswar Chowdhury, and the late Damodar Mahanta. The College was accorded the status of deficit grants-in –aid in 1972 by the Government of Assam. Before this the College had run on a self- sustaining basis with many teachers preferring to embrace the sheer nobility of the profession turning back on lucrative opportunities elsewhere. In the formative stages the College offered pre-university (Arts) programme. Later on a full fledged Pre University Commerce course started in 1984. The undergraduate arts classes got under way in 1966-67 session and the programme got affiliation from Gauhati University in 1971. The Degree Commerce classes started in the year 1978.

Bowing to the public demand for post graduate course in English, the College authority took steps to begin the two year PG course in the year 1991. Immediately afterwards Gauhati University granted affiliation to the PG programme. Since 2002 the PG course in English is running on semester system.

.
TODAY.

We have at present two programmes at UG level, i.e., B.A and B.Com (three year degree course) and one programme at PG level, i.e. M.A in English. Apart from these a vocational course in Financial Accounting (TALLY) is also offered on self sustaining basis.

The College offers Major programmes in 10 subjects at the BA level and 2 at the B.Com level. Subjects offering major in BA are: English, Assamese, Bengali, Hindi, Bodo, Economics,

Political Science, History, Education and Philosophy. At the B.Com level the major courses are offered in Management, Accountancy and Finance.

The College entered into new era of academic studies by introducing Bachelors’ degree in Business Administration from 2008, affiliated to Gauhati University. Subsequent addition was in the form of introducing Bachelors’ programme in Mass Communication and Journalism under the Career Oriented Programme of UGC in the year 2009 with formal permission and affiliation of Gauhati University. The year 2008 also became remarkable for the College when it signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with IGNOU and became the Partner Institute under Convergence Scheme. A series of programmes and courses of distance learning were introduced under the scheme in this campus converging the conventional, and distance modes of teaching-learning. However, the withdrawal of convergence scheme by the parent organization led to the end of Partnership. Moreover, a fine replacement has been made with rapid expansion of IDOL Study Centre in the College introducing classes for a series of Master Degree Programmes for drop-out students. Contact classes and counseling sessions are regularly organized for the enrolled students under distance mode.

.
TOMORROW:
The dynamics of the present strategies we have adopted may be an index for the future vision. Our priority will be to strengthen the teaching-learning aspect not necessarily to churn out graduates and post-graduates, but also to institutionally inure them to a participatory vision in building a society. Needless to say, our effort will stress on a formation of an integrated consciousness in a multi-ethnic society representing our college. We plan strategizing an expansion of the infrastructure and in diversifying courses catering to the needs of the time. Various job-oriented certificate courses are soon to be introduced. Moreover, the College will step up activity on out-reach programmes testifying to its vision of the institution’s social activism.
