Since its establishment in 1932, Jogamaya Devi College has come a long way. Founded by Shyamaprasad Mukhopadhyay, the college initially started with only 155 students.

The first principal of this college was Sri Panchanan Sinha. Today the college has a separate building for accommodating the students of the new subjects. Besides, it also has a well stocked library for separate departments and makes a mark for its experienced faculty.

The master degree programmes have been recently introduced by the college and are recognized by the UGC (University Grants Commission). The college also offers prestigious scholarship programmes like Jogamaya Devi College Award to deserving candidates.
