The Department seeks to nurture the faint dreams in the young learners who are motivated to give meaningful shape to their dreams. The faculty members constantly strive for exciting the students to think, to imagine and to dream. The Department endeavours to inculcate critical and innovative thinking in students by suitably integrating the prescribed courses with real life examples. The Department fuses traditional lecture method with the ICT-enabled innovative teaching methodology and offers greater academic exposure to students by engaging them meaningfully in different academic programmes like Special Lecture, seminars etc regularly undertaken by the Dept.
