When ShaheedBhagat Singh College opened in 1967, it offered honours courses in two subjects, i.e, Commerce and Economics along with B.Com (Pass)and B.A (Pass).DrShri Ram was the first teacher to join the department .There was only one section in each yearand the number of students rarely exceeded 40with no female students.
The college grew in size rapidly especially after moving to its present premises. Today we have almost 200 students out of which almost half are women. Faculty strength has grown to 11members in the department. The cutoff percentage for admission has steadily grown over the years and is 96% at present and thereby attracting quality students.The faculty is extremely dedicated and hardworking with maximum interaction between the students and the teachers. The result is that over 30%of students score first division marks in their bachelors degree. Those who opt for master’s degree have gained admission to leading institutions like Delhi School of Economics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Indian Institute of Management,South Asian University, TERIUniversity,and Indian Institute of Foreign Trade etc.Some have opted to study abroadand joined universities in the United Kingdom and United States while others have carried out lucrative careersfor themselvesin various fields.
Students from reserved categories join at a lower percentage.Many of them have performed very well and have pursued further studies and career. All this has also been possible with excellent library facilities available in the college and the emphasis of the faculty members on continuous and quality interaction with students.
