In 2005, a new Certificate Course “Concepts and Theories of Public Administration” was started. Project Work was made mandatory for the final year students since 2007. In 2008 a Foundation Course was initiated for first year students. An Add-on Course titled “Perspective of Indian Constitution” was introduced from the academic year 2017-2018. The Department regularly conducts Assignments, Quiz, Seminars, Group Discussions and Remedial Classes for the students.
