Initiation and brief overview

Since 1981, the Department of Education has had only general courses. The honors section started from 2000. Right from the initial years till date, the Department has a sustained good academic record with University rank-holders (UG). At present, the Education Department has a five-member faculty ( 1 monastic member, 2 associate professors, 1 assistant professor and 1 guest lecturer).

Vision and outlook 

We visualize education as acquisition of knowledge, perfection of skills, inculcation of beneficial habits and above all as a means towards sustainable development. We focus on scaffolding and proximal development of our students so that they can be self-reliant and self-sufficient, keeping in view the CBCS syllabus under WBSU.

Methods of teaching

Apart from classroom lectures or the chalk and talk method, the Department uses ICT based classes and audio-visual aids, like Power-point presentations, to enhance learning interests. The Department also organizes educational tours and other extension activities each year as a part of the existing syllabus to imbibe a better understanding of philosophical, psychological, sociological and research methodological foundation of Education. Regular assessments through unit tests and class-tests and end of the semester mock-exams ensure that the students are well prepared for their final end-semester examinations. 


The Department maintains a Seminar Library constituting of relevant books and materials of reference that are not part of or available in the College Library. The Department also has a collection of educational AV material related to the Core Course syllabus. It also has a rich collection of wall magazines and projects related to the syllabus. We also have a computer laboratory as practical is a major part of CBCS curriculum.

I am an alumnus of Ramkrishna Sarada Mission Vivekananda Vidyabhavan.I completed graduation from the department of Education in 2010. The three years of college was the golden period of my life – enjoying the classroom teaching but also learning valuable lessons of life. Our teachers were our friends, philosophers and guides. Their advice and blessings remains a constant companion in conducting me through life’s challenges. Today I am employed as a high school teacher. I learnt from my teachers to recognise unity in diversity and apply it in my own approach as a teacher. I would like to express my sincere respect and gratitude to my college and my teachers.
