Message from Head of Department

Education is a lifelong learning process and it is important that students should enjoy this process.  We, the teachers in the Department of Political Science, always try to provide a learning environment and opportunities for our students as learners. I believe that my students should grow as strong individuals with key personal and social values, develop critical thinking and be able to analyse the issues based on their merit.  We, the teachers in the Department are ever ready to help the students to prepare themselves to face the challenges of today's world and I am sure every student will make their mark in this world in their own way. We wish them all the best for their future endeavours.
