Tufanganj Mahavidyalaya was started with the approval of the Govt. of West Bengal on 24.12.1971, and affiliated to the University of North Bengal on 12.01.1972. The Department of Bengali came in to being right at the inception of Tufanganj Mahavidyalaya in 1971. Honours Course in the Department was introduced in 1995. Honours affiliation in Bengali was granted by the University of North Bengal. From 30.07.2015, the College has come under the Cooch Behar Panchanan Barma University and the affiliation was shifted. Studies in Bengali Language and Literature in consonance with the syllabi of the Cooch Behar Panchanan Barma University are imparted in two analogous sub-streams - Bengali Programme Course and Bengali Honours. Compulsory AECC and LCC Bengali (MIL) is indeed, binding for all students irrespective of their divisions into Arts, Commerce and Science streams.
Since its inception, the department has been growing day by day and it is one of the oldest and largest department of our College. Now the Dept. has approximately One hundred Honours students and Two thousand General Students per semester. The propensity of the students for Bengali Honours is noticeably more than for any other subject taught in the College.
The department gathered mass of faculties who devoted their time in teaching the subject. Presently the department has three full-time teachers including one Associate, two Assistant, and two SACT Professor. The faculty members are quite actively involved in research and teaching activities. The teachers also participate in various workshops, seminars, paper presentation on relevant issues. After the completion of graduation, the majority of our departmental students pursue a Master's degree in Bengali and many of the students are enrolling into higher education each and every year.
The success rates of the students are more or less satisfactory. The teaching-learning method of the department includes classroom lectures and seminars with active student participation. Occasional internal evaluations like MCQ, Viva, written class tests, and class presentations are held to evaluate the students’ performance. Apart from the academic activities, the department also organises various programmes and encourages the students to participate in many activities, like different cultural programs, to encourage different soft skills of the students.
Every year we celebrate Rabindra Jayanti and International Mother Language Day. All the teachers in the department also share a very amicable relationship with the students and create a favourable atmosphere so that the teaching-learning process becomes joyful and fruitful.
