Anandaram Dhekial Phookan College is a seat of learning that was established in 1959. It is named after Anandaram Dhekial Phookan, an illustrious son of Assam, who struggled hard to establish the fact about the excellence of Assamese language and who desired all along to see a prosperous, beautiful Assam. The college caters for higher education needs of an educationally backward district of Assam like Nagaon as well as of the State situated in a serene atmosphere away from the din and bustle of town life, though within the town, the college offers an ideal surrounding dotted with green, luxuriant and foliage for teaching-learning atmosphere.
Anandaram Dhekial Phookan College since then has been doing yeoman’s service in the sphere of higher education of the state. Facilitating open access to the wider horizon of higher education for the disadvantaged people of the state in general and of Nagaon and its adjoining districts in particular, the college has lived up to the changing circumstances and demand of the people. Rising up to the expectations and aspirations of the people, the college in its sixty two years of existence has transformed itself from a single stream night college to a Day shift college having multiple programmes.
Affiliated to Gauhati University first in 1963 for Arts stream and then in 1979-80 for Science stream on temporary basis, the college acquired permanent affiliation in 1989-90 and 2010 for Arts and Science streams respectively. Recognized by UGC in 1968 the college has twenty one departments and a number of skill development and Value Added courses, both UGC sponsored and self-financed. It opened M.A. course in Assamese, History and M.Sc. in Herbal Science & Technology.
