Department of Political Science

The Department of Political Science, Presidency University cherishes its illustrious past, but tries every moment to enrich its present. With a bunch of fresh, inquisitive students and dedicated faculty, the department’s quest for quality and knowledge is unbound. And this quest goes beyond the formal syllabus, beyond the four walls of our classrooms. Students are encouraged to question and debate, and raise issues within and beyond the syllabus. They are encouraged to participate in students’ seminars and present papers. The pedagogy involves guiding students to write dissertations and term papers from undergraduate classes beyond formal lecturing. The department believes in helping the students to grow as good human beings, not only good students.
