Initiation and Brief Overview
The department of Political Science offers an undergraduate three years Honours Course and Generic Electives to other Honours Courses at the B.A. level. The department was established in the year 1962 with two full-time teachers. Later, another two full-time teachers were recruited to increase faculty strength of the department.

The core emphasis of the department is on familiarizing students with the conceptual and applied essence of the discipline. The course offers a set of skills which are an excellent preparation for a wide range of careers in academics, research, civil services and other competitive examinations, non-government organizations and private sectors. Currently, the department has four permanent faculty members, all scholars with a sharp academic bent of mind. They are involved in research and have several individual publications and presentations nationally and internationally.

Vision and outlook

The discipline of Political Science requires students to understand politics in all its nuances, to probe power relationships which exist in human interaction and examine fundamental principles of democratic functioning that guide ideas and institutions.

Methods of teaching

 Apart from classroom lectures or the chalk and talk method, the Department uses ICT based classes and audio-visual aids, such as films and Powerpoint presentations, to stimulate learning interests. Members of faculty use innovative teaching methods to make learning experimental. This involves the use of micro-teaching, debates and quiz. Series of public lectures and workshops designed around the course are also used by teachers to provide extensive knowledge to the students. The department recognises the need for making project work as an academic requirement for all courses. Students undertake projects on all papers under the supervision of the concerned faculty. These projects are undertaken in various formats including group work as well as individual presentations. Field visits and study trips aid to the teaching-learning process. Regular assessments through written classwork and class-tests and end of the semester mock-tests ensure that the students are well prepared for their final end-semester examinations.

Infrastructure:

The Department maintains a Seminar Library consisting of relevant books and materials of reference that are not part of or available in the College Library. A laptop and a camera are part of the Departmental assets and are used for enhancing teaching-learning and for documenting and recording special events.

Formulation of Departmental Policy for Slow and Advanced Learners September 4th, 2019

In keeping with the policy of the Slow and Advanced Learners of the College, the department of Political Science has formulated certain specific guidelines to identify the Slow and Advanced Learners of the discipline. This identification of slow and advanced learners is done from class response/performance of respective students within one month from the commencement of their classes.

Assessment of student quality is made by teachers in individual capacity in terms of the following:

  • At the very onset, every student is assessed verbally and asked informal questions from the previous school-leaving syllabus. This is usually done before beginning with classroom teaching to have an initial idea around the students (to figure who has retained how much from the previous syllabus);
  • Short quizzes on politics and current affairs are then conducted unannounced in the class to test their interest and knowledge in the chosen subject;
  • Then begins classroom teaching keeping in mind that there are students with varied levels of understanding. Hence teachers continuously keep evaluating the students – whether they are able to grasp certain theoretical concepts (that forms the edifice of understanding Political Science – what is Politics, what is meant by political etc) by asking relevant questions in the class or if they can answer questions when asked;
  • At the same time, care is taken to note if a student is having low capacity to comprehend core concepts and their applications. Such core concepts pertain to the domains of International Relations, Public Administration and Comparative Politics which are essential to the understanding of the discipline;
  • Lack of motivation and interest in the discipline come out through these exercises;
  • A class test at the end of the month taken by the respective teachers brings out the performances of the students in the class. Identified slow learners usually score less than 50%, while the advanced ones come up with a score of more than 60%;
  • Final assessment is made in a single agenda departmental meeting after discussing the performances of the students.

So, Slow Learners are usually identified with:

  • Lack of motivation and interest in the discipline
  • Slow response
  • Low capacity to comprehend core concepts and poor writing skills
  • Lagging behind in dealing with higher order topics

Strategies undertaken for tackling Slow learners:

  • Remedial classes (within the weekly routine) are conducted regularly for the identified slow learners;
  • During these classes, teachers are expected to engage in providing with easy study materials and help students grasp the topics with individual attention towards them;
  • Help is provided in terms of monitoring their reading and writing abilities. Students are repeatedly told that they should read reference and text books and then prepare notes in their own language that should be simple, correct and easy to comprehend, learn and remember;
  • They are encouraged to get these notes corrected by respective teachers;
  • They are also advised to write within a time limit so as to facilitate their writing speed.

Advanced Learners are usually identified with:

  • High Grasping Capacity
  • Quick Response
  • Self-motivation
  • High potential to deal with tough topics
  • High capacity to comprehend core concepts and apply them in real world situations

Strategies undertaken for helping Advanced learners:

  • They are encouraged to prepare projects, join seminars and talks both online and otherwise on various topics on their respective courses and also on other topical themes.
  • They are also advised to prepare Power point presentations, participate in group discussions on topics both within and outside the purview of the syllabus both within and outside the College.
  • They are motivated to crack competitive examinations and orient them for better career

planning and growth.

  • They are inspired to get engaged in certificate/value added courses to nurture their skills
  • on SWAYAM etc.

TESTIMONIALS

 

SOMA MONDAL (EX- STUDENT) PREPARING FOR NET EXAMINATION.

I am proud a former-student of RKSMVV department of political science. The disciplined college life is helping me on the way. Every Teacher there taught me various subjects with love and charm, encouraged me to pursue higher studies. They continued to help me to improve my skills and guide me. I am proud of my college, faculty and forever grateful to them.

 

 MOUMITA PARIA, ASSISTANT TEACHER, BHUBANNAGAR  VIDYAPITH (H.S))

The time that I spent in Ramakrishna Sarada Mission Vivekananda Vidyabhavan college is one of the most remarkable and unforgettable times of my life. I am lucky to get the chance to enjoy my college life in this institution. This college has given me a new environment from where I learnt to face new challenge. I cannot forget the relationship that formed with the teachers and Mataji. They have helped me to take right decision of life, to build my confidence. They prepared me with the finest academic and platform to generate dreams into realities. Till now I remember the moments spent in the Hostel. One of the best things of three years in my college life was when I got quality time with my friends and teachers and learning experience. The last days of my college were the most sorrowful knowing that I will be departing my friends, the campus, teachers, and completely leaving behind a part of life.

 

PAYEL PAIK (B.A.POLITICAL SCIENCE HONOURS)

 TELECALLING OFFICER, HDB FINANCIAL SERVICE. 

I am very proud to be a part of Political Science Department of RKSMVV. I considered pursuing political science honours from an institution like this was one of the best decisions of my life. The very supporting faculty helped me to enhance my skills. Political science became my love because of my professors. They always inspired to never give up in life and helped me to overcome from difficult situations. That’s why I believe those three years were the golden moments of my life.

 

SABANAM KHATUN (EX- STUDENT) WORKIG IN TATA CONSULTANCY SERVICE AS A TRAINEE/ BFSI

The department of Political Science at RKSMVV will always be an integral part of my life. The professors have been instrumental in nurturing in me an ability to think and write critically and understand and derive the embedded meaning of the text on my own. The education, discipline and maturity which it has instilled in me, always helped me to overcome both personal and professional challenges. I have imbibed the virtues of discipline, regularity, hard work and humility here, which helped me immensely to stay hungry to learn, work toward my goals and yet keep my humanity intact in my journey.

 

NIKITA MONDAL (EX- STUDENT), PURSUING COURSE IN PSYCHOLOGICAL COUNSELLING

I spent the golden moment of my life at Ramakrishna Sarada Mission Vivekananda Vidyabhaban.I will remember the love I received at Ramakrishna Sarada Mission Vivekananda Vidyabhaban along with the curriculum based education. I am a student of Political Science, I have always received a cooperative attitude from every teacher in the department, they have always helped us in every way. Needless to say, I have always received help from every respected Mataji in the college. Our college library is very good, from where we always got all the help related to the curriculum. Besides, the pleasant environment of my college the spiritual atmosphere attracts me even today. The knowledge I gained from Ramakrishna Sarada Mission Vivekananda Vidyabhavan, I will try to remember it forever, and I will always have respect for all the respected Matajis, all the teachers, all the people of my college.

 

TANDRA MONDAL (EX- STUDENT)  PREPARING FOR NET  EXAMINATION. REMEDIAL TEACHER AT RKSMVV

I have enjoyed my college life to the fullest and I am a proud alumnus of Political Science department of Ramakrishna Sarada Mission Vivekananda Vidyabhavan and owe a lot to my professors. My department is an amazing department. The professors of my department have a pleasing personality. Their method of teaching was very easy and interesting. Our professors had provided us with the best possible grounding in study and inspired us to take up higher studies. From lending book to correcting answers they have always been there for us. They have taught us with real love and care. They took personal interest in all the students. Though we made mistakes, they were supportive. They have an excellent knowledge on their respective subject. They are very helpful. They are our mentor, motivator. They taught us from academic knowledge to moral values. Our professors taught us the tough skills of life, discipline, friendship, sincerity, dedication, struggles, experiences, joy and commitment. They are the great idol of us. They taught us to come out of any bad situation in life through wisdom and patience. They are always with us. Our professors are friend, philosopher and guide who hold our hand, open our mind. I am truly grateful to my respected professors always. Student life is the time of learning. We all know that libraries are treasure troves. Our college library as well as the library of the department helped us a lot. Every single moment spent in that college is something special which I shall cherish for the rest of my life.
