The process of experiential learning includes an annual field visits to the parliament of India, Rastrapathi Bhavan, Gandhi Bhavan and other important places. At regular intervals guest lectures are arranged to have the best interaction and to make the subject more practical. Newspaper reading is a regular affair to keep the students updated in political affairs. Our ultimate aim is to enable our diverse student body to be an ideal citizen and to become successful and influential professionals in the future social, political and academic life of their home countries.

The cognitive skills the department seeks to impart include the employment of different methods of analysis and critical thinking. Use of these will enable students to deepen and broaden their knowledge of politics and to articulate their own ethical stance on issues studied.
