Birjhora Kanya Mahavidyalaya, Bongaigaon, a premier institute of higher education for women in Lower Assam, was established in the year 1993. The initial objectives of establishing this institution was to disseminate knowledge & skill to the women of nearby areas of Bongaigaon district. Located at the heart of the Bongaigaon town, the college is very well connected both by road and rail communication.
An institution of higher education solely for women was a long felt need of the region. This need brought together a likeminded group of Philanthropists led by Mr. Phani Bhushan Choudhury, MLA of Bongaigaon and sprouted a dream by the name of Birjhora Kanya Mahavidyalaya. Thus, the college first started its journey with just 50 students and 7 faculty members. But today the college has grown into an institute of excellence with more than 800 students and 34 faculty members. Initially the college was started only with the Higher Secondary stage, but subsequently it started the undergraduate courses (B.A) in 1995. The college was accorded affiliation by Gauhati University and recognized by the UGC under sections 2 (f) and 12 (B) of the UGC act. At present the college offers UG courses in Arts both honours & regular. Apart from this the college also have study centres of KKHSOU & IDOL which offers various UG and PG courses through distance mode.
Birjhora Kanya Mahavidyalaya provides a unique and ideal learning atmosphere to the students for their all round development. Apart from scholastic activities the college gives equal importance to the co-scholastics activities, to help the students to develop as an individual with integrity, emotionally and mentally harmonious, physically capable as well as socially and culturally educated.
