Welcome to Berhampore College situated at 20, C. R. Das Road, Berhampore, Murshidabad, 742101. The College started its journey in the year 1963. At that time it was renowned as Raja Krishnath College of Commerce.

Berhampore College (so re-named) which was established in1963 started its journey for the study of commerce at undergraduate level, later on responding to the needs of the larger section of learning folks, started the disciplines in Humanities and Science also. Now after six decades, we are teaching nine curricula along with two self-financed courses.

Since 1963, it has been fighting against entire educational backwardness among the youth of different socio-economic groups of adjacent area. Majority of our students come from poor socio-economic stratum and minority community. The endeavour of this institution is to open up the world of knowledge to different strata of pupil to such an extent so that each of them would be able to quench their thirst for knowledge and be-gainer in future. We have developed our expertise and competence in the core curriculum and in the mode of the teaching – learning process.

At present we can accommodate 5374 students under proper surveillances of 49 devoted teachers (including all the teachers on substantive posts and guest teachers). Automated Library system is endowed in such a way so that students can get their proper assistance for various academic matters and be self-sufficient to enhance their capacity of independent learning. The College Library is endowed with such books from which students can meet up their quest of knowledge and also build-up their knowledge for competitive examinations. Physical classroom teaching is blended with reasonable use of ICT to make the teaching-learning process more learner-centric. Students are encouraged to attend the internal assessment processes, present seminar papers, participate in quiz and debate competition (s)making discussion through social media to enhance their knowledge about various advanced aspects of subjects. Performances of our non-teaching staff are also very conducive for up gradation.

Objective of our teaching–learning process is to make a learner more tolerant, logical and of course, a rational human being. Our periphery is not limited within the boundary of the college premises but extends to society to communicate its accumulated knowledge, values and skills from one individual to another individual or group of people. To build up the treasure of knowledge, the college authority has taken several initiatives with assistance of its several wings like IQAC, NSS, Anti-ragging Cell, Equal Opportunity cell, ICC, etc throughout the year. College has its annex Boys hostel, Guest house, Conference hall, Administrative Building along with its main academic building.

The students who passed out from this institution are admitted in various academic institutions including many state and central universities within and outside the state like Visva Bharati, BHU etc. They are also well placed in various academic and administrative services including colleges and schools, in West Bengal Civil Services, in banks and insurance companies, and in other reputed private sectors like IT sector, commercial sector, electronic and mass media sector as well.
