About East Calcutta Girl's college
|East Calcutta Girls' College was established in 1992 at Lake Town in Kolkata. It took 14 years of planning and efforts to set up this college. Located adjacent to Lake Town Government Sponsored School, it is affiliated to West Bengal State University. During its formative years, it got generous funding from a women's welfare institution of Norway. Locals too, especially businessmen and industrialists played an important role in funding the college. With only 5 subjects to offer and a handful of students and teachers, East Calcutta Girls' College made a modest beginning. Over the years, it has now grown up into an undergraduate as well as postgraduate college. Meant exclusively for girl students, the college now has 17 departments with more than 1400 students in its roll. Other than its undergraduate courses in the arts, science and commerce streams, it now offers postgraduate courses in Geography and Education. |
