Department Details


OVERVIEW

Since the establishment of the college, Political Science has been taught by the name ‘Civics’ by faculty in the Department of History to the Pre-Degree students. The department of Political Science was established in 1974 as a subsidiary subject to both Economics and History. Since then, teachers of Political Science started teaching the students of Pre-Degree and Degree batches. As such, two teachers handled the whole working hours of Political-Science. Later, when the Department of English started functioning, Political Science became the subsidiary for Literature students also. When Pre-Degree was de-linked from the colleges in the late 1990s the working hours got reduced considerably. Now the Department continues its service as a subsidiary subject for B.A Economics, B.A History and B.A English Literature, with one permanent faculty.

VISION                                    
To build the capacity for academic excellence in all students
