    Education Department of Chittaranjan College has completed more than two decades. Previously the subject was taught by teachers of other disciplines having professional training in this subject at the higher secondary level. In 2003, Education was introduced at the under graduate level. Over the years it has expanded with full time and part time faculty members focussing on imparting quality education and enrichment of students’ activities.

    Smt Namita Majumder from the Department of Bengali took classes of this department. In 2002, Ms. Shyamali Ghoshal joined the department as part time faculty and now has been approved as SACT-2 ( State Aided College Teacher) by the Department of Higher Education of West Bengal.In 2006,Mrs Subarna Ghosh joined as part time teacher and now she is working as an assistant Professor in a college affiliated to the West Bengal State University.

    This department has always emphasised on the “manifestation of perfection” among the students. As Education is a multidisciplinary subject, it focuses on different subject areas like Educational Philosophy, Educational Psychology, Educational Sociology, Inclusive Education, Teaching skill, Peace Education, Skill for Democratic Citizenship and so on. Starting with the 2+1 system this department has made an eventful journey towards transition to 1+1+1 system, CBCS System and the newly CCF System.

    Our goal and mission are to help the students towards all round development, inculcate values, maintain healthy relationship among students and teachers, make aware of social responsibilities, sensitize about various social issues, develop empathy and provide guidance as and when required. The faculty members of this department are dedicated and always try to introduce the students to the latest horizon of knowledge. Project works done by students not only develop their knowledge but also grows self-confidence. Students and teachers of this department together take part in different co-curricular activities like preparing wall magazine, class debate, extempore, etc. and thus they share a healthy cooperative relationship.
