In fact, the first teacher appointee of Tura Government College was a Philosophy teacher. In 1962 Three Year Degree Course (TDC) was introduced, Philosophy being one of them. Since then Philosophy Department has traversed a long path contributing immensely to the cause of higher education to this region.Eminent personalities like Late R.N.Dutta (former Principal and DPI), Late T.K.Das (former Principal), Late Enothsing Ch Sangma (former Chairman,MPSC), and highly capable and dedicated teachers like Madam D.M.Das, Sir K.P.Choudhury, Madam Mahua Sarkar have greatly contributed to the development of this department.
