About the College
Ours is an institute with a history of nascent origin, however, moving with steadfast pace toward excellence and grafting its august presence in the national map of higher education and research.
Founded officially on 20th July, 2007, Amdanga Jugal Kishore Mahavidyalaya is the crest jewel of the people of Amdanga and adjoining area and an epitome of their dream and demand. The institute started its maiden journey with an extremely limited capacity with a five-roomed small one-storied building, 5 nos. of guest faculties, 2 nos. of casual non-teaching staff and just 57 nos. of enrolled students. With time it achieved a number of milestones and commendable success in developing an academic and administrative infrastructure, although a long way is yet left untraversed. Today the college is sprawled over 2 acres of land by the side of NH-34 with two spacious buildings – Kalam Bhavan and the newly built Bankim Bhavan with adequate number of state of art classrooms, offices, common rooms, gymnasium, modern washrooms and, more than thousand students and above 30 numbers of fulltime teachers.
While climbing on its vision of disseminating knowledge and education that globalizes the self and liberates the soul, this institute fosters a lofty mission to contribute remarkably in nation-building by rearing up a community of pupil who are multi-skilled, law-abiding, environmentally conscious, and dutiful as well as to frame an economically viable future for all stakeholders.
The institute currently offers courses on arts stream only, both Honours (in Bengali, Education, English, History, Philosophy and Political Science) and General courses (in Arabic, Bengali, Education, English, History, Philosophy, Physical Education, Political Science and Sanskrit) at the UG level with accommodating capacity of more than twelve hundred students. CBCS curricula have been introduced in undergraduate courses from 2018. ICT enabled classrooms make learning both appealing and interesting. The Central Library of the College with a stock of more than four thousand books along with the adjoining Reading Room is one of the best of its kind.
