The history of this college can be traced
back to 1901, when Bhagwan Dev Atma,
the most worshipful founder of Dev Samaj,
established Girls High School, Ferozepur City.
These were the times when education of girls
was very much despised. This premier and popular
institution served as an incentive for the
establishment of many other reputed institutions
in Northern India.In 1957 Dev Samaj Girls High
School and Dev Samaj Junior Model School was
established. Consequently, Dev Samaj College
for Women, Chandigarh was started in 1981.
During this short period of its existence,
this college has carved a distinctive place
among the local colleges and can be compared
well with other colleges affiliated to Panjab University.
