Academic Initiatives For Students
Academic Excursions for Students :
Such academic excursions help students to acquire knowledge about the socio-cultural history of Kolkata. First, second, third year students of the Department of Sociology were part of academic excursions. Topics such as Rabindranath Tagore and Swami Vivekananda are part of their academic curriculum. So visiting such places helps to enhance their knowledge. At Ramakrishna Mission Swami Vivekananda Ancestral House and Cutural Centre a documentary on Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Swami Vivekananda were shown. Third year students visited the Tea Gardens in North Bengal in 2016. Students of third year have done a dissertation on tea plantation worker and the problems they confront in their lives. The Kolkata Police Museum is located in North Kolkata. The history of Kolkata police is documented in that museum. Students were shown a documentary on the history of Kolkata Police.

In 2014 students visited Jorasakho to learn about the 19th century Bengal, role of Tagore family with special reference to Rabindranath Tagore.The feedback from the students have been positive. ‘Live’ documentation of history helped them to understand the culture of the place.
