The Department of Assamese, as a distinctive faculty was introduced in 1949, in the year of establishment of the College. At present, the department has 5 teachers. In addition to these who are working against sanctioned posts, there is one part time teacher in the department. As the college in Assam has to take the extra responsibility of the 10+2 level classes, so the existing number of staff is less than sufficient. The ratio of teachers to degree level students is 1: 320. However, all the faculty members are sincere, industrious and dedicated to teaching. There is a healthy and cordial atmosphere in the department which has deep qualitative impact on teaching - learning process.
