About The Department


About Political Science Department:

Department of Political Science was officially established as a separate discipline in 2014 at Domkal Girls College.  Since its inception in 2011 and till date, this department has produced a bevy of successful students, who are engaged in various professions across the state. The enthusiasm among female students towards this subject has increased over time, although the university admission trend is relatively low, it may be noted that this is a ubiquitous problem which is rampant in all the colleges in semi-urban areas.

 Although political science was not included as an honours subject in the beginning, the Department of Political Science was started as a separate honours course later in 2014.  With the addition of two permanent professors in this department in 2019, and one more in 2023 the department is currently under the supervision of three Assistant Professors and one SACT teacher, the teachers and students of this department have successfully participated in youth parliaments, quizzes, debates and other extra-curricular activities.
Students in this discipline usually come from rural areas.  Some students also hail from semi-urban families.  Most of our students are from socio-economically backward minority families, a substantial section of students belonging to the scheduled caste and scheduled tribe populace also study in the department and most of them are first generation students.  In addition to that, many of them are physically engaged in agriculture for livelihood purposes.  The department organizes remedial care classes for socially backward minority and tribal students and slow learners, the major objective being the obliteration of academic inhibitions among the students and make them academically oriented.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
