About College
Women’s Christian College was founded in July, 1945 under the auspices of the Bengal Christian Council and is located in its own building. It is affiliated to Calcutta University in Three Years Degree General & Three Years Degree Honours Course. It is a Christian Religious Minority Institution and recognised as such by the Govt. of West Bengal & University of Calcutta.

Women's Christian College, Kolkata was established on July 19, 1945, for the education of Bengali speaking Indian Christians. The founders felt it necessary to have their self-administered college, following the closure of the Diocesan College for women students. The initiative to establish a Christian college for women was taken by Miss Nirajbashini Shome, founder secretary, and Miss Stella Bose, the founder principal of the college. The London Missionary Society allowed the founders to use the ground floor and two rooms on the first floor of the present building for one year free of rent. The intermediate in arts (I.A.) course was started with three students in 1945-‘46 and the figure rose to twenty-two by the end of the session. Calcutta University affiliation for the I.A. course was granted in 1947-‘48 and that for the B.A. course in 1948-‘49. Initially, the Honours Course was extended to Bengali, English, Sanskrit and Economics. The Saroj Nalini Memorial Institution donated furniture to the college while the Sisters of the Oxford Mission, helped with books and furniture. The London Missionary Society building was bought along with six cottah of land in May 1952 for Rs. 30,000/-. The property was augmented by the acquisition of two more premises after seven years. An additional building for the B.A. course classes and an assembly hall were built with the help of the State Government and University Grants Commission. Financial assistance was received from the Methodist Mission, the Baptist Missions and an anonymous donor from the Church of England.
