The department seeks to advance the science of politics and public administration through teaching and research. The B.A. (honours) course is design to equip the students with the foundation of the subject while opening for them channels to pursue higher studies as well as opt for competitive exams or other career. The course is also designed to keep in tune with the civil services syllabus of the competitive exams. The department has introduced M.A. in public administration in 2000 and M.A. in political science in 2014.
