The French department was established in 2002 with an objective to cater to the needs of French language learning to the people of Northeast states. Part time courses like Certificate, Diploma and Advanced Diploma have been launched. The aim is to teach functional French along with language competencies: speaking, reading, writing, listening. Certificate course is for beginners. Diploma is an intermediate level and Advanced Diploma is an advanced course. Upon successfully completing advanced diploma, one can do M.A French directly in some of the universities provided one has B.A in any subject. During these years, the department along with other foreign languages have organised two national level seminars and many workshops. The department is planning to start regular courses. The department is also planning to technologically upgrade already existing language lab shortly.
