J B College - JBC Jorhat - JBC

Jagannath Barooah College, briefly J. B. College is a premier institute of higher education located in Jorhat, a city with rich cultural heritage and glorious historical background in the upper part of the Brahmaputra Valley of Assam. Since its inception in 1930, the college has already marched a long way and has celebrated its “Platinum Jubilee” in the year 2005. The institute has already been accredited by NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council) in 2003 and awarded B+ grade on the basis of its performance in the field of higher education.   A Peep in to the Past: Behind the establishment of this premier seat of higher education lies the selfless and enthusiastic commitment of a tiny but highly learned group of scholars of this culturally rich city who, in fact, shaped the destiny of the academic milieu of the North East region in general and the entire Brahmaputra valley in particular. The valuable contributions made by this dedicated group had subsequently led to the formal initiation of an institution known as Upper Assam College in Jorhat in 19th August 1930. Less than a month later, i.e., on 4th September 1930, the first Governing Body (GB) Meeting of the Upper Assam College resolved to name the college as Jorhat College and this continued till 1938 when, in a resolution of another GB Meeting, it was again decided to rename the college as Jagannath Barooah College in the memory of Jagannath Barooah, the first Graduate of Upper Assam. Late Murulidhar Barooah, the grand-son of Jagannath Barooah donated the entire land and the Barpatra Kutir (existing office and teachers’ common room) to the college. The founder principal of this oldest institution of the region was Prof. Krishna Kanta Handique, world renowned Orientalist, distinguished scholar and academician. The other dedicated founder teachers were Prof. Tulshi Narayan Sarma (Founder Secretary), Jagneswar Sarma, Phanidhar Dutta, Prafulla Pran Changkakati and Gunagobinda Dutta. With a small batch of 14 students in 1930, the college was started first with Intermediate of Arts (IA) which received formal affiliation from Calcutta University in 1931. Thereafter, the events of the college moved rapidly. In 1939, the Intermediate of Commerce (I.Com.), in 1941 the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), in 1944 the Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com.), in 1949-50 the Intermediate of Science (I.Sc.) and in 1952-53 the Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) streams were opened. From 1931 to 1948, the college was affiliated to the Calcutta University and from 1948 to 1965 to the Gauhati University. Since the establishment of Dibrugarh University (DU) in 1965, the college has been affiliated to it. The college now has a diversified field of teaching. Currently it has 19 departments, viz., Assamese, Bengali, Botany, Chemistry, Commerce, Computer Science, Economics, English and Functional English, Geography, Geology, Hindi, History, Mathematics, Philosophy, Physics and Electronics, Political Science, Sanskrit, Statistics and Zoology. Except Bengali, Hindi and Computer Science, all other subjects have Major Courses at the Degree level.  The post-graduate (PG) courses in Geography and Philosophy were opened in 1995 and 1996 respectively. The new century began with the opening of the PG courses in other branches viz. Assamese, Economics, History, Mathematics, Political Science and Sociology under the Distance Education Scheme of Dibrugarh University. The other professional and self-financing courses are of recent origin.
