বাংলা বিভাগটি 1969 সালে মাথাভাঙ্গা কলেজে প্রতিষ্ঠিত হয়েছিল এবং কলেজে শুরু হওয়া প্রাচীনতম বিভাগ। বিভাগটি শিক্ষার্থীদের জন্য অনার্স এবং প্রোগ্রাম কোর্স উভয়ই অফার করে। অনার্স কোর্স চালু হয় ১৯৮৩ সাল থেকে। বর্তমানে বিভাগে ৩ জন ফ্যাকাল্টি মেম্বার রয়েছেন যাদের মধ্যে ৩ জন সহকারী অধ্যাপক এবং বাকি ৩ জন এসএসিটি শিক্ষক। বিভাগের শিক্ষণ-শেখানো পদ্ধতির মধ্যে রয়েছে শ্রেণীকক্ষের বক্তৃতা, সক্রিয় ছাত্রদের অংশগ্রহণে সেমিনার। অভ্যন্তরীণ মূল্যায়ন যেমন MCQ, Viva, লিখিত ক্লাস পরীক্ষা, ক্লাস প্রেজেন্টেশন শিক্ষার্থীদের কর্মক্ষমতা মূল্যায়ন করার জন্য অনুষ্ঠিত হয়। একাডেমিক কার্যক্রম ছাড়াও বিভাগটি বিভিন্ন অনুষ্ঠানের আয়োজন করে এবং শিক্ষার্থীদের মনোবল গড়ে তুলতে এবং তাদের আত্মবিশ্বাস বাড়াতে সাহায্য করার জন্য বিভিন্ন সাংস্কৃতিক অনুষ্ঠানের মতো অনেক ক্রিয়াকলাপে অংশগ্রহণ করতে উৎসাহিত করে। বিভাগের সকল শিক্ষকও শিক্ষার্থীদের সাথে খুব বন্ধুত্বপূর্ণ সম্পর্ক ভাগ করে নেন এবং একটি অনুকূল পরিবেশ তৈরি করেন যাতে পাঠদান-শেখানো আনন্দময় ও ফলপ্রসূ হয়। শিক্ষকরা নির্দ্বিধায় শিক্ষার্থীদের যেকোনো প্রশ্নের সন্তুষ্টি বোধ করেন। স্নাতক শেষ করার পর আমাদের বিভাগীয় ছাত্রদের অধিকাংশই বাংলা ভাষায় স্নাতকোত্তর ডিগ্রি অর্জন করে এবং কেউ কেউ গণযোগাযোগ ও সাংবাদিকতার লাইন বেছে নেয়|
