The Department came into being in the year 1981 consequent on the bifurcation of the till then composite Department of History and Politics. The goal, initially, was to strengthen the discipline by seeking to increase the number of Colleges/University Departments, which could take up teaching and research in Political Science. It may be noted here that Political Science at that time remained a highly marginalized discipline in the higher education set-up of Tamil Nadu, with only four colleges in the state offering it at the U.G level (viz.,) besides the two University Departments at Madras and Madurai. The situation today is marginally improved, with six colleges and three University Departments teaching the subject.
