Department of Political Science

 

The Department of Political Science is one of the oldest departments of the College. It was established in 1958 when the college began as Deshbandhu (Evening College), offering Political Science papers to B. A. (Pass) students. The Department began to offer Honors courses in Political Science from 1969 with a sanctioned strength of 40 students. Since the College was renamed Ramanujan College in 2010, and became a full-fledged morning college, the Department got the scope to expand its sphere of activities on a larger scale.
