The department of Philosophy was introduced at the time of inception of the college. The department has been offering the B.A. (General) course from the 1961-62 academic session. Even at the general level, philosophy as the parent subject helps the students to get an insight into the basic principles of subjects like Education, Sociology, or Political Science. Logical reasoning skills are developed through classes on Indian and Western logic. Over and above course oriented regular studies, the students are encouraged to grasp the ethical and psychological facts of life, differentiate myths or superstitions from reality and to rise above book learning.
The department conducts regular seminars and workshops for the students. The department is actively involved in psychological counseling of students for which regular sessions are held in the college.
