Profile of Government CollegeGovernment College, Hoshiarpur Punjab India , situated at the foot of the Shivalik Hills, caters to the educational needs of Hoshiarpur, Jalandhar and Gurdaspur districts of Punjab. It came into being in 1927 as an Intermediate College with Shri Bihari Lal Bhatia as Founder Principal. Before partition itself, in 1943 it was upgraded to a Degree College in view of the great demand as erstwhile Kangra district and present day Una district of Himachal Pradesh were also among the areas covered by its academic facilities.
This premier educational institution of Punjab has a proud history and a glorious past as it served as the seat of Teaching Departments of the Panjab University from 1948 till 1960 when the University was shifted from Lahore. During that period it was known as University College, Hoshiarpur. Eminent Scholars like Dr. Vishwa Nath, Dr. K.K. Dewett, Principal S.S. Chawla headed the institution while academic giants like Dr. R.C. Paul, Dr. Manmohan Singh ( Prime Minister of India), Dr. B.S. Minhas were on its faculty.
This nursery of talent in academics, sports and culture has always stood up to its 80 year old traditions and aims at contributing its best towards the education of the population of the sub-mountainous region, better known as Kandi Area of Punjab. At present having a faculty of 95 teachers, the college imparts instruction in 8 Post-graduate and 7 Honours School courses. Besides this, it offers Under-graduate Courses in Arts, Science, Commerce and Vocational subject of Functional English.

The number would run into scores. Poets like Sahir Hoshiarpuri, Muneer Niyaazi and Prem Kumar Nazar had been students here while Dr. Jagtar and Suresh Seth had been teachers.

The vision of the college can be summarized as follows:-
To inculcate academic and intellectual skills.
To help students to evolve as good citizens with integrated personalities by tapping their innate potential.
The college occupies a very prominent position among institutions of higher education in the state of Punjab. The need for realistic self-appraisal arises in the globalized context in which all educational institutions have to compete with and establish linkages with each other. Only such a self-appraisal can lead to further growth by foregrounding major thrust areas for meeting standardized norms and development.
In 1974-75, there were 2,552 students (1,728 boys and 824 girls) on the rolls of the college.
