About The Department

Kamrup College, Chamata, is a rural based premier institution of Co-education in the lower part of the state of Assam. The College has been imparting general education to the students of the locality honestly and sincerely  since its inception in 1966. History as a subject of study was incorporated in the curriculum of Kamrup College in the very year of its establishment. Major course in the subject was introduced in the degree level in 1990. Under the able guidance of renowned educationist Sri Sarbeswar Das as its founder Head, the department of history has been playing an active role in the academic upliftment of the College. Renowned lawyer sir Dhiren Barman also highly contributed in this field as  a lecturer of the department in the beginning.


As the department of History we believe in the origin of knowledge which lies in the subject of History . History is the only way to know the past, without which one cannot assess the present. So all the branches of social science owe its existence upon history. We believe that by a comparative study of history one can know the actual strength and weakness of a nation. Again a declining nation is inspired to regain its lost glory by studying the glorious history of its past. The department believes that it is history which serves as the basis of all civilizations. In this regard the dept. strives to create a civilized society teaching the students the history of mankind since past up-to-date and there by improving their standard by evolving their national sentiment. The department also aims to adopt a comparative study of world history for comprehensive study and information and at the same time create consciousness against the misdeeds of the past. A spirit of patriotism and integration should be inspired for the upliftment of true and scientific history of the surrounding. This department at the same time aims also to keep alive the trading of historical teaching, writing and learning . Also its vision is to prepare the students for further higher studies and make them survive in the field of competitive market of employment.
We have already tried to translates our vision into reality by collecting and rewriting the history of west Nalbari area, the area where in our college is situated.

Future Plane

In the very near future the dept. is planning to undertake field trip to the local sports of historical importance, particularly some old temples. The purpose of the visit is to make the students know about the old structures, their architectural designs and antiquity.
