About the department

The Department of Mathematics was established in 1964. The Honours stream was introduced in 1985. The departmental library has a collection of 900 books. The total number of computers available in the department is 9. Internet facility is available. The department has a Numerical Laboratory as needed for the syllabus. Mathematics is a set of ideas and techniques that enable us to understand, analyze and solve problems faced in the real world. It has scientific precision. It also has aesthetic pleasure that fascinates and inspires those who understand it. Our graduates have ventured into diverse careers since they are recognised for logical and rigorous thinking. The department has four full time teachers and one full contractual teacher. The good news for the department as in the year 2018 the department has got sanction from the University of Calcutta to introduce the Post Graduation curriculum in Pure Mathematics.


The Department of Mathematics educates students in pure mathematics, inspiring them to appreciate, understand, and engage these disciplines. The study of mathematics offers a unique and important way of interpreting the world around us, bringing accuracy and rigor to the quest for discovering patterns in observations both abstract and concrete. We nurture a mathematical point of view in all of our students as a critical part of a university education. We strive to give the opportunity to mathematics majors and minors to acquire a broad and solid base in mathematics enabling both further study and application, and provide an outstanding undergraduate environment of courses and opportunities. The heart of our endeavor is excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service. To that end, we value individual work with all students; we encourage the development of existing and new courses and seminars; and we promote participation in mathematical activities at local, regional, and national levels. Professional and community activity of faculty members is critical to support this mission, and we work to extend strengths in research, exposition, and professional leadership while maintaining a tradition of service to the College community and beyond.

Student Learning Objectives

  1. Logic and Proof:
    Students will learn the basic principles of mathematical logic, to formulate conjectures, state them in clear mathematical form, and prove them as theorems or reject them with counter examples. They will develop sufficient competency to read basic mathematical literature and be able to rewrite, expand upon and explain the proofs.
  2. Communication in Mathematics:
    The ability to communicate effectively in both oral and written forms while applying their mathematical skills. Students will learn the basic language of proof and counter example. Students will organize and present significant ideas and calculations in written form.
  3. Problem Solving:
    A good understanding of basic mathematical methods for problem solving. Students will have a command of the fundamental methods of the calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and abstract algebra.
  4. Breadth and Depth:
    Students will develop an awareness of the breadth and depth of mathematics of mathematics. This will include an awareness of historical and contemporary contexts in which mathematics is practiced. They will develop critical perspectives of the inherent limitations of the discipline.
