The Department of Geology was started in 2015 with annual intake capacity of 15 students in UG (Honours) course. With geological location on the Raniganj Coalfield within the Chhotanagpur Gneissic Complex, the college provides an ideal setting for teaching and learning of geology. For skill development through geological field training, the students get good exposures of varieties of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks with associated primary and secondary structures within 4-5 km from the college campus. Many open cast coal mines are also located nearby. The study of recent sediment and sedimentary structures can be done in the Damodar River, which flows in vicinity of the college.

The department has well equipped laboratories, virtual class room, computer laboratory with internet facility, seminar library and a museum with spectacular specimens. The performance of the 1st batch of students, who appeared the University Part-I Examination in 2016 is quite satisfactory. Out of total 11 students, 08 students scored 1st class marks in honours subject. With a view to generation of employability in future, the department has also started 6-semester CBCS course in Geology (Honours) from 2017.
