The Department of Political Science of the West Bengal State University started its journey from the year 2009 with a growing number of students enrolling in the department every year. The university is crucially located in the densely populated border-district of the North 24 Parganas, West Bengal with its tremendous potential to provide access of higher education to students coming from distant constituencies, marginal communities and penurious socio-economic and cultural background apart from the ones coming from central to adjacent localities like Bangaon, Barasat, Barrackpore, Basirhat, Dum Dum to Howrah, Hoogly and Kolkata.
Imparting critical knowledge, enhancing general awareness and helping in the creation of keen and sustained interest regarding society and politics amongst the students are the primary aims and objectives of the department. In order to fulfil the same, the department makes conscious attempts to motivate its students to think, write and speak analytically; to channelize their potentials towards meaningful socio-academic activities like public speaking, debates, paper and poster presentations, essay writings or social service; and to orient and guide them for various competitive examinations and related career opportunities.The vision is to create a conscious and informed citizenry out of our students for which the department has been keen and conscious.
