SWOC analysis of the department and Future plans:


To teach students to think and to write clearly; to read carefully and critically; to reason effectively and systematically; and to reflect on major questions concerning moral values and the good life.


Lack of adequate number of departmental rooms and the departmental office room is not spacious.


Diploma in value/moral education may be introduced to promote the development.


To attract students to the subject by removing all misconceptions that it has no practical value now a day.


We will continue to foster contexts in which students are encouraged to spend time outside of the classroom, involved in extra-curricular activities, and Department sponsored event with faculty. We will remain active participants in our students academic lives.
