Kolkata: Vivekananda Thakurpukur College is all set to introduce post graduation courses in its curriculum.
This initiative was inaugurated on Friday by Education Minister Partha Chatterjee. The principal of the college, Dr. Tapan Poddar along with other professors were also present in this ceremony. For these new courses, the college has even set up a new ‘Bhawan’ to fit in the upcoming infrastructures for the new courses. The newly built ‘Bhawan’ was inaugurated by Sovan Chatterjee, mayor of Kolkata.
Vivekanada College is set to introduce Post Graduation courses in Bengali and History. 50 seats have been allocated for each of the courses. The classes for each of the courses are scheduled to commence from September 2016. But the students, as per the college officials, would have to spend more than what they would have spent if they would have studied the same course in the college street campus of the Calcutta University. They have also said that in future they would introduce more subjects in their curriculum.
This regulation was introduced a few years back to reduce the pressure on the university’s main campus. Several colleges started post graduation courses in their campuses. Baghbazar Women’s College and Asutosh College already have this system. The Vivekananda Thakurpukur have stepped into this regulation.
