Over the last four decades, the college has opened up new subjects either in honours or in general e.g. in Economics, Philosophy, Bengali, Geography, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Political Science, English, Botany with History and Accountancy to begin within the year of inception in 1964. In today’s world of Globalization and modernization particularly in mass communication and information technology, we have opened new departments:- Computer Science and Electronics. Since technology has, advanced and come up a long way in the past few years, we found it utmost essential to open up courses in these two years. The ready access to computers and relevant course matter will benefit students in their future job search. We all know that a student can never develop his mental and physical aptitudes unless and until he or she has enough physical fitness. Keeping in mind the usefulness of this particular area, we have also opened a new subject of Physical Education and a Gym Training Centre. The College has opened a study centre of Netaji Subhas Open University from January, 2004 to facilitate graduate andpost-graduate distance education to meet the needs of the society.

In recent years, the college has introduced new subjects namely Zoology, Food and Nutrition, Sociology as General course of Undergraduate studies. In addition, the Honours Courses in Sanskrit, Education and Chemistry have been introduced. On the other hand, the college has opened the post graduate courses in Geography, Mathematics and Bengali to fulfill not only for satisfying the demand of the locality but also to upgrade the standard of college. It is to note that the above-mentioned courses / subjects are affiliated to University of Calcutta and in self-financing mode. The Seminars/Conferences are organized regularly in the college. Professors deliver their lecturers with ICT facilities showing power point presentations, etc.
