About the Department

With the objective of creating human resources and generating avenues for in-depth research and study and particularly to maintain steady progress with the development of archaeological research in other parts of the globe; the Government of Assam has taken initiatives to establish a new Department for learning in archaeology at Cotton University. The Department, established in the year 2015, has started a Post Graduate program (MA in Ancient Indian History, Culture and Archaeology) and a PhD program in Archaeology for fulfilling the long-standing requirement. The Department plans to set-up a Laboratory-cum-Museum of Archaeology for systematic documentation, analysis and display of archaeological objects.
