Welcome to the Department of Sanskrit at New Alipore College!

Established in the year 1963 for General Course and later in 2008 for Honours Course, the Department of Sanskrit has been a beacon of academic excellence and cultural preservation. Offering both UG Honours and General Courses, we are proud to be a cornerstone of learning and exploration for all Sanskrit enthusiasts.

Our Approach to Education:

Guided by the University's directives and our institution's academic committee, we had successfully embraced a dynamic blend of the Choice-Based Credit System (CBCS) and the traditional annual system of learning. We are now adopted to NEP 2020. This approach ensures that our students receive a holistic education that is both comprehensive and adaptable.

Continuous Assessment for Success:

To foster a conducive learning environment, we believe in continuous assessment. Through mid-term tests and selection exams conducted before university examinations, we help our students excel in their academic pursuits. This approach ensures that they are well-prepared, confident, and ready to conquer their examinations.

Diverse Academic Offerings:

While our flagship course is the Honours in Sanskrit, we extend our academic reach by offering Sanskrit as a General Subject to Honours courses in Bengali, Philosophy, Political Science, Education, History, and Journalism. This diverse range of subjects not only enriches the learning experience but also equips our students with a broadened perspective.

Nurturing Curiosity and Scholarly Pursuits:

A vibrant academic atmosphere thrives within our department, thanks to a series of seminars and workshops conducted throughout the year. These events are designed to ignite curiosity, foster critical thinking, and encourage students to pursue higher studies in the field of Sanskrit.

Embracing the Future:

We are excited to announce that this year, the Department of Sanskrit has wholeheartedly embraced the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. With this integration, we are aligning our educational approach with the latest pedagogical advancements, ensuring that our students are equipped with skills that transcend time.

At the Department of Sanskrit, New Alipore College, we are not just educators; we are guardians of a rich cultural heritage and promoters of intellectual growth. Join us in our journey to explore the timeless wisdom of Sanskrit and pave the way for a brighter future.

For more information, inquiries, or to get involved in our academic pursuits, feel free to reach out. We are here to guide, inspire, and lead you on a path of discovery.

Excursion to Shantiniketan

Department of History

Ashram style is unique. Here, Tagore wanted to blend best of both Western and Indian education systems. Hence, in Shantiniketan, students learnt in close harmony of nature.


Excursion to Marble Palace and Jorasanko

Department of Economics and Philosophy

On 20 December 2017 we made a delightful tour to Jorasanko. Our team was comprised of Priyasa, Sajid,Mallika all of whom are enthusiastic students of the Department of Philosophy. We had with us Jayita madam. To lead the party, there was Nivedita madam. The whole team of students was waiting at the college gate when Nivedita madam turned up at around eleven in a rented Tata Sumo. Without losing a moment we boarded the Sumo chock-a-block. Our destination was the great Thakurbari(i.e., the palatial house of the famous Tagore family) of Jorasanko. Having overcome the perennial traffic jam of Kolkata, we finally landed into Thakurbari. Jayita madam soon joined us at the entrance. A large ground at the front, a lash green velvety lawn and a myriad of seasonal flowers all around –they greet the visitors in unison. At the outer edge of this panoply stands-like a painting on an immense canvas – the façade of the extensive, crimson, stately building that was the fountain head of culture in pre- independent India. From the front it looks two- storied with an impressively long colonnade of paired columns on each floor, in identical manner. The modestly protruding porch just covers the gap between two consecutive pairs of columns

standing around the center. White iron filigree forms an arch for this porch which holds a small balcony atop its roof.
