Department of Environmental Studies

About the Department

“The environment is where we all meet; where all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share. It is not only a mirror of ourselves, but a focusing lens on what we can become.” -Lady Bird Johnson

Environmental studies connect principles from the physical sciences, commerce/economics, the humanities, and social sciences to address complex contemporary environmental issues. It is a broad field of study that includes the natural environment, the built environment, and the relationship between them. With this aim Plassey College laid stress on the introduction of the Environmental Studies Department for the students.

The Environmental Studies Department of Plassey College started its journey in 2010. The courses have been approved by the higher education department, Govt. of WB and are affiliated with the University of Kalyani. The department began its ride in the hand of Ankur Biswas (H.O.D).

Environment studies are all about learning the way we should live and how we can develop sustainable strategies to protect the environment. It helps individuals to develop an understanding of living and physical environment and how to resolve challenging environmental issues affecting nature Environmental science careers can be extremely rewarding. Not only can you work in a career that brings important change for the entire planet, you can earn a sizable income while doing so. But to enjoy this excellent profession, you need the right education. So individuals have a wide range of opportunities in their careers. They can apply for the roles of environmental engineers, environmental biologists, environmental scientists, environmental journalists, and much more. Communicate complex environmental information to both technical and non-technical audiences; Understand and evaluate the global scale of environmental problems; and reflect critically on their roles, responsibilities, and identities as citizens, consumers and environmental actors in a complex, interconnected world. We motivate and prepare students to rise to the challenges and opportunities associated with human-environment interactions. Environmental degradation is an escalating problem from local to global scales. Training students to understand and address these environmental problems is our core mission and is why we believe that environmental studies is an essential component of a modern liberal arts education.
