DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

DEPARTMENTAL PROFILE 

1. Name of the Department : Anthropology Department 

BACKGROUND  
The department of Anthropology under both science and arts stream started in July, 1994 .The department started with three teachers and one laboratory bearer. The first batches of higher secondary and TDC students appeared in the final examination in 1996. From 1996 onwards numbers of students in Anthropology is increasing rapidly and are passing with flying colours. Each year 25 to 65 numbers of students are carrying letter marks in the subject. The major course in TDC class was introduced in the year 2009 with ten seats. And the number of seats has increased to 25 numbers. Till date many students have completed higher studies and engaged in different jobs.ogy

FIELD WORKS / EXTENSION WORKS OF THE DEPARTMENT  FIELDWORKS  Each year department has conducted field study. The students of H.S. classes are trained to

                                    Session: 2020-2021

 
Collect information through survey scheduled method in the field and the students of T.D.C. classes are given lesson on field methodology by actual work on the field. Data related to different socio-economic conditions are collected by the students through different methods such as survey schedule, participant observation, direct observation, interview and case study methods and after compiling and analysis of data they prepare a report on different topics such as agricultural cycle implements, marriage, family structure etc. or simply on socio-economic aspects of the villagers of respective fields.
OTHER WORKS   GROUP DISCUSSION:  
Group discussion is held on the topic “Importance of fieldwork in Anthropology & Methods & technique of data collection” in each session.  
 
Power point presentation Powerpoint presentation was done by the students of 3rd semester and 5th semester  on 22nd/23rd and 18th March,2021 respectively. 
LIBRARY WORKS Major students are assigned to do library works. A topic from their syllabus is selected and students are asked to write on it. 

ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES 3rd Semester students conducted environmental study and prepared a project report as per syllabus.( Paper HC 3026) 

MUSEUM STUDY Students of 5th semester students conducted museum study in the Mayang Ethnographic Museum, Mayang of Morgan district Assam 

Plan of the Department 1. Collection of museum objects of different tribes of North-East India. 2. Photographic documentation of all the important festivals, dances and Fairs of Morigaon district of Assam in phase manners.
