DEPARTMENT OF POLITICAL SCIENCE
The department of Political Science at SEACOM is adequately staffed with highly competent faculty. The students who have passed out have received moderate to good placements all over the country on their own merit. The department provides comprehensive programme of instruction in the fundamental areas of the discipline: political Universities and processes, development and transformation of theory and concepts, understanding different approaches to political analysis, political sociology, public administration and the legal contexts necessary for understanding politics and debates about it.
DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY
The department of sociology aims to engender analytical and critical thinking among its students and has continuously endeavored to incorporate the most contemporary debates in Sociology in its academic curriculum. So while the monological method of teaching continues, it is supplemented with various kinds of practical exposures. Village trips are therefore organized for every batch of students so that students learn how to relate theory with facts, not only that the village exposure helps the students to develop a perspective which they would not have attained otherwise. To encourage the creativity in the students and also enable them to think critically, dissertation writing was made compulsory component of the curriculum. The students benefit immensely from their research work. This also enables them to become an independent thinker which stands them in good stead once they finish their graduation.
