College History

Barjora College (presently under Bankura University) was established in 1985 when virtually higher education was a long way off, especially to the economically backward classes of the Northern Bankura District. To cater the need of higher education a few distinguished education-lovers, dedicators and social reformers of the locality came to the forefront to realise the long-cherished dream to set up a College. After hard and unflinching struggle the distinguished personalities, also the common people of the area and a few members of the Mondal family provided land and fulfilled other necessary conditions for sanctioning the college. However, after Govt. approval this Institution was initially started in Barjora High School, later it was shifted to its own building in 1986 with a poor infrastructural facility. Gradually, it could find its own way of existence with increasing amenities in the open atmosphere of flora and fauna. After a ‘ten years pass course run’ considering the growing demand of the people for extension of greater facilities of higher education emerging from the changing socio-economic conditions in the rural Northern Bankura DistrictTheUniversity of Burdwan and concurrently the State Govt. sanctioned English Hons. first in 1995. Later, Bengali Honours, History Honours, Political Science Honours, and Philosophy Honours,courses were introduced. Geography and Sanskrit Honours have also come into existence in this college. The NSS wing of the college also functions very well. At present the college also offers various computer science courses under the approval of Webel.
