and students of the department.

and Federal Public service commission for the appointment of teachers
in colleges. Seminars, lectures, mental health camps, conferences
and professional development courses, etc. are arranged for the students

Teaching & Assessment
Teaching is based on interactive class participation:
group discussions, class presentations by students, assignments,
research work etc. to maintain interest and make learning more effective.
The use of audio visual aids brings out the creativity of teachers
and students, and helps in improving their presentation skills. Assessment
is based on class performance of students, their punctuality, assignments
and particularly the semester examination results.
