Educational Tour

Generally speaking educational tour serves as an add-on to the teaching-learning process, which with its practical orientation makes the essence of learning more interesting and effective. Though in the UG Sociology Curriculum, Educational Tour is not prescribed, yet teachers prefer to give their students some realistic and practical understandings through taking them to some short tours. In 2018 and 2022 the faculties took the departmental honours students to educational tours to enrich their sociological knowledge and horizon.
