About the Department
The Department of Physics was established in the year 1978 on account of the hard work and tough efforts of some high intellects of the world’s largest inhabited river island. There was no institution of higher education in Majuli up to 1962 and hence it got the name Majuli College. The science stream was introduced in 1978 in the college with the subjects physics, chemistry, mathematics, and biology. Physics was implemented in 1983 at the undergraduate level and was brought under the deficit system (grant-in-aid) on 01/02/1986. To keep pace with the advancement in science and technology, the department started offering major courses in the year 2012.
