Post Graduate Department of Urdu

The department of URDU was established since the inception of the College. In the beginning Urdu, Persian and Arabic were under the single department. In July 1967 the Urdu Department was separated from others. The renowned poet Prof Raza Ali Wahshat, honored by the British Government as khan Bahadur was the first teacher of this Department. He served the Department from 1926 to 1937 and in that period the Department progressed a lot. Following his path this Department earned the name as the best centre of Urdu language in Eastern India. Prof. Abbas Ali Khan Bekhud, Prof. Shah Maqbool Ahmed, Prof. Javeed Nehal, Prof. Ezaz Afzal and Prof. Abu Nasr Ghazali were the renowned teachers of the Department.

The Department always tried to expose the students to the aesthetics of Urdu literature and language. This trend had been carried out since the inception of the College. The Department always helped the students to bring out the talent and creative abilities among the students. The department of Urdu and the associate teachers believe in fostering literary sensibilities among the students.

The Post Graduate Courses in Urdu was introduced in 2009-2010 with semester system under the University of Calcutta. The students of Urdu are required to write term papers and Projects on their special interest.

Guest teachers from different universities and colleges have been extending their helping hands. The Department seeks their advice and guidance for functioning it. Prof. Qaiser Shameem, Prof Shamim Anwar, Prof S.M. Shabber, Renowned short story writer Shahira Khatoon and Dr, Hasin Ahmed Zahedi are our Guest teachers and advisors. The said Guest faculties gave a new dimension to the Department.

Seminars, symposium and workshops are arranged time to time for the benefit of the students. Extension lectures have been organized in which many renowned scholars from different universities and colleges participated.
