Department of Geography

Department Profile

Although Geography has been taught from the fifth grade at the school level in recent days in our state, there were very few opportunities to study Geography at the undergraduate level, even at the higher secondary level. But in our college i.e Karimpur Pannadevi College, Geography has been taught in higher secondary and B. A pass course for many years. Subject to the approval of the W.B.C.H.S.E and UNIVERSITY OF CALCUTTA, Karimpur Pannadevi College used to teach Geography. But the facilities for studying Geography at the undergraduate level were not so much in our state. Many students at that time had to emigrate to the other state to pursue Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Geography.

One of the reasons behind the growing popularity of Geography in the present era is its Relevance and scope of professional opportunities. The list goes on and on about Geography. Which can open the door to a future career without stepping on the usual path

In view of the growing popularity of Geography and the needs of students, in 2001 under the supervision of the then Principal Prof. Sri Santosh Kumar Dhar, Karimpur Pannadevi College (under Kalyani University) got approval to teach Geography at the under graduate level. From then on, Karimpur Pannadevi College started its journey to the honorary degree of Geography. Since then, for the past two decades students of the Geography department of Karimpur Pannadevi College consistently producing very good results and later working in various educational institutions and various other government and non-government institutions has brightened the face of the college. We hope that the students of Karimpur Pannadevi College’s Geography Department will help the college to keep its head high by achieving very good results in the future as well.
