  1. SWOC analysis of the department:

  2. Satisfactory student strength with different abilities ; not academic; but also in co-curricular activities like games/sports, cultural performances, leadership etc.
  3. Enrolment is also satisfactory with good pass percentage in HS level.
  • Excellent academic feedback in Major and General course. Passed percentage is almost 100% with first class with distinction and star marks.

  1. Department has a own staff room with a computer, shelves, own notice board and some other accommodation.
  2. Department has a small own library with 508 books and it is in running from 2003 with issuing books to the Major student till now.
  3. A separate laboratory practical room enriched the department.
  • Student progression is satisfactory.
  • Friendly student teacher relationship is a unique strength for the department and that is why the department able to done various co-curricular activities smoothly.


These are two major problems for the department which create other relevance problems and weakness to the department. These are-


  1. Lack of teacher and non-teaching employee as laboratory bearer.
  2. Lack of proper psychological laboratory.


Because of these two weaknesses there arises-

  1. Limited seat provision for admission
  2. On the other hand, with a large no. of students HS level is a burden for the department. This level is not actually under with higher education as the structure is 10+2+3. All the faculty members have to do all activities for them.




There are other some weaknesses:


  1. No own funding provision for uplifment.
  2. Rural based college and flood affected area, bad communication condition, poor economic backgrounds of the student are some weakness to the department.
  • No separate classroom building.




  1. Introduced short term course like Montessori Training Course for pre primary level as skill based course in 4th Semester.

  1. D.EL.Ed. Diploma course under Open University/affiliated university as the paid course for one or two year in distance mode also.
  • Lots of opportunity are there for combined DIET course as integrated B.A. B.Ed course as teaching professional course for primary or secondary level.
  1. With the help of the college the department can take initiative to introduced psychology or applied psychology as a subject for UG level student.
  2. Opportunity for collaborate learning with other department as well with local college, service to secondary and upper primary level as extended work.
  3. If HS level is cut from degree level or separate teachers are appointed for them than, there would be arises many opportunities for uplifment of the department.


  1. Flood affected area, poor communication facilities; rural based college with limited facilities skill passed percentage is almost 100% in Major/General in the department.
  2. Midterm dropout is high and it turns into a challenge for the department.
  • Several students are failed in different subjects; specially in English and out of them some students create wastage and stagnation problem in UG level.
  1. Because of limited facilities for psychological experiment (practical class) and lack of associated school for practice teaching practical, the department falls several problems but still the department tried to managed into a satisfactory position.

As the educational structure is 10+2+3, the HS level is not actually responsible; still all the teachers have to spent their time for this level. For balancing the academic activities for both level is a big challenge for all of us.



        As the rural based college there are several problems and challenges to us, but still we have some dreams that may be comes into reality. We have some plans for the development of the department. These are:-


  1. With the help of the college authority to be established a sophisticated well-equipped suitable psychological laboratory room.
  2. A well stocked collection of books, journals with reading facility a separate departmental library room is to be established for students for both Major and General course also.
  • To be introduced short term skill based course.
  1. Try to publish own departmental bulletin and edited printed copy of departmental wall magazine.
  2. To held alumni programme and teacher parents meet as the department will be celebrated its Golden Jubilee after four years.
  3. To be open departmental own web site.
  • Try to establish a separate departmental building with classroom, laboratory room, library room etc.
  • Though we have academic limitations still we hope and confident, there would be introduced PG classes on department of education of Majuli College in future.


(All documents  are  kept  in  department like, proceedings of  departmental meetings, records of students’  activities, progression evaluation attendance Register of each teacher,  course plan etc. )
