The Department of Geology was started as an undergraduate department in the year 1959 in an outhouse belonging to Zoology Department. It was later shifted to the present Anthropology department for a short period before occupying the KBR Hall. In 1963, B.Sc. (Hons/Major) course was introduced. The M.Sc. course was started in 1986 under Gauhati University. It received the financial assistance from the DST, Govt. of India under its FIST programme. The department also received fund from the UGC under the scheme ‘Basic Scientific Research (BSR)’. The laboratories of the department are recognized for carrying out Ph.D. research. At present, the department has ten faculty and three office staff.
