Serampore College was founded in 1818 by William Carey, Joshua Marshman and William Ward to give an education in Arts and Science to students of every ‘caste, colour or country’ and to train a ministry for the growing Church in India. From the beginning the College has been ecumenical, but this means that it has no automatic basis of support from any one branch of the Christian church.


Today, in a combination of subjects unique in India, nearly a hundred and fifty Theology students from a very wide range of denominations and a score of languages study alongside three thousand in the Arts-Science-Commerce department, which is affiliated to Calcutta University.


Friends of Serampore provides a link for those who wish to support the College with their interest and prayers. Members receive periodic newsletters which are also available for download (click the Newsletters link at the left). For many years we have subscribed to a number of journals for the library. In the year 2000, the Principal challenged us to raise also at least £2000 per year to support fully one Theology member of staff – for several years now we have passed that target by over £1,000, but the needs are great.
