University of Calcutta is a collegiate public state university located in Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

It was established on 24 January 1857, and was one of the first institutions in Asia to be established as a multidisciplinary and Western-style university.

The college offers Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Physics. It is a three year full time degree programme.

As per your request below I am providing you the University Of Calcutta Syllabus For Physics Honours:
