About the College:

B. P. Chaliha College, Nagarbera was born in an auspicious moment in the year 1972 in the sylvan setting of Nagarbera, embraced by the sweet flowing river Jaljali on the eastern side and a vast expanse of green field on the western side.

The College was aptly named after the Ex-Chief Minister Late Bimala Prasad Chaliha, an illustrious son and an architect of modern Assam. The College is situated on the south west corner of Kamrup district and extends its grasp over two other neighboring districts – Barpeta and Goalpara.

In addition to catering to the need of higher education in Kamrup district, it also promotes knowledge and skill among the vast mass of socio-economically disadvantaged people of greater Nagarbera area.

The College strives to achieve excellence in every possible human endeavor. Presently the College is a full-fledged one with Arts, Science and Commerce streams. It has been offering Honours courses in fourteen different subjects besides the HS (Arts and Science) and certificate courses.

About the Seminar:

With the rise of globalization and enhancement of children-parent education, quest for healthy employment opportunity is a current societal trend. Parents, students and teachers too continuously rummage around for new white coloured jobs for the maintenance of standard of modern life.

Traditionally people paid more attention to medical and engineering professions but presently the scenario has changed. Many reputed MNCs, NGOs and international institutions are expanding their base and subsequently demand for Social Scientists including Economists, Policy Makers, Managers, Psychologists, Philosophers, Counselors, Social workers and Good Speakers has been rising.

Those institutions, companies and organizations provide a handsome amount of emoluments from the day one of job appointment. Besides, in such jobs scope for capacity enhancement, flexibility in postings and tours, family safety and security measures are high and increases continuously throughout the job life and attainment of seniority.

On the other hand, due to Covid-19 complexities and life threatening issues, medical professionals and other technical persons are finding difficulty in their own way and shifting jobs to management and other sciences.

At this juncture, the spacious Humanities and Social Science study is providing varieties of new opportunities besides the traditionally run options. Under the ensuing New Education Policy (NEP) prospect of Humanities and Social Science Study is expected to be very high in India.

Northeastern region (NER) of India is not only abundant in natural settings but also a significant knowledge area of East and SouthEast Asia. Reputed academic institutions of Northeast including IIT, IIM, IIIT, IIHM, AIIMS, NITs, Polytechnics and Central-State Universities have been producing manpower since the independence.

Skills enhancing professional institutions are also contributing a lot. Northeast India is also the pool of English speaking young people whereas there is dearth for the same in central India.

But significantly, NER is geographically land locked and more than the 98 percent land boundary of the region shares borders with the foreign countries (China, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Nepal). Thus there is prospect for choosing a career in Humanities and Social Sciences in NE India.

Main objective of this upcoming national event is to give a podium to thrash out the plethora of issues related to education and career opportunities in Humanities and Social Science Study in NE India.

Findings of the seminar will be prepared in a hard bound form and submitted accordingly to government houses for policy purposes.

Hence, all the respected faculty members, research scholars, students, academic administrators, policy makers and professionals are invited to participate in the upcoming national event and requested to share their research findings/perceptions including challenges for better career choice of our uses.
