All Departments

The Khasi department was started with the inception of the College in 1956. Manned by only Part-time teachers then, their committed effort is clearly projected as they were drawn from subjects other than literature as there were no post-graduate facilities for studies in Khasi language at that time. Thus, the department takes pride in being associated with luminaries like: Prof. (late) R. S. Lyngdoh, Shri F. M. Pugh, Shri H. Syiemlieh, Shri M. Alexander Warjri (former M.P.) and few others who gave the department a sound foundation.

In 1969, Prof. Alexander Campbell War joined the department as the first full time teacher and with his exemplary dedication and untiring efforts he gave shape to the effective teaching and study of Khasi literature in the College. But cruel hand of malignancy ended his life before he could realize his goal completely. Then, the department had the benefit of the service from noted poet and novelist Shri (Late) B. C. Jyrwa and then Shri H. S. Nongbri until his retirement in the year 2000 and Smt M. Gatphoh assumed charge as the Head of the department until her retirement in 2010. Then, Shri T. S. Rajee took over and serve the department tremendously until his retirement in 2015. After his retirement Dr (Smt) D. Mawroh became the head of the department till her retirement in 2018 and Shri H. Marwein took charge of the department in 2018 till date. The department presently has six faculties and they are: Shri H. Marwein (Head of the Department), Dr. (Smt) A. Nongbri, Shri. S. Kharrymba, Shri P. R. Shabong, Smt. B. Syiemlieh and Shri. K. G. Diengdoh.
