SWOC Analysis of the department •Strengths: Dedicated staff members.
Students are survivors even though they
belong to the disadvantaged section of the
society. They are either working or get jobs
after completion of the program.

• Weakness: Only one staff member as per
government norms limiting the activities that
we would like to conduct.

• Opportunities: Sociology is a subject
which is of relevance to the society and
students can be encouraged to become
entrepreneurs and establish their own NGO.

• Challenges: Since they are working and
come from much marginalized section of the
society it is a challenge to maintain their
concentration in the classroom.
Future Plans To organize inter-collegiate students’ seminar.
