The SWOC analysis of the department is the strength in Research Facilities is provided to the faculty, creative and innovative techniques are applied in teaching and developing research qualities among students. The only weakness is dependence on affiliated University for approval of new courses. The opportunities are to develop new qualities among students and challenges to introduce new courses after XII in humanities and strengthen the students to face challenges of life. The future plan of the department is to have more major and minor research projects for teachers and to start new Add-On Courses and to have a study center.
