SWOC analysis of the Department
The student’s enrolment and the annual pass percentage are the two main strengths of the department of History, Ambedkar College, Fatikroty.Besides, the regular classes there is a provision for Remedial coaching classes for students on holidays which helps the department to achieve success and excellence in academic pursuit.
Inadequate faculty, lack of departmental Library and unavailability of course books in local market are the weakness of the department.
There are ample opportunities to organize Seminar, workshop etc. on History.
The challenge for this department is to reduce the dropout rate of students between each year (i.e. 1st, 2nd and 3rd yare in 1+1+1+ system) and to create job opportunities.
