The lab of the department is fully equipped with modern instruments for the fulfilment of practical curriculum of the syllabus. Anthropology is the scientific study of human, the students got the theoretical aspects of the subject and apply the same concept in the real field of overall and personal development and move toward the new avenues of life with confidence. The department with the support of the institute provides an opportunity for those deprived class of people who live near by the island of Sundarban and who can’t go beyond the Sundarban Island for economic, family and communication related reasons outside the coastal area of Sundarbans and nearby for further & higher studies.
