The knowledge and skills imparted to the students under this courses empower them in a wide array of fields such as teaching, higher research, law, bureaucracy, mass media, finances and non-governmental organization.

The courses are taught in both English and Hindi. The Department organizes a lot of activities throughout the year-seminars, lectures, academic tours, etc affording an opportunity to the students to develop hands-on knowledge and skills.
