Political science has been part of the college curriculum right from the inception of the college in 1964. The department of Political science came in to force in 1967 when the college was upgraded. The department has always been the pride of the college. The outstanding achievement of the department is the fact that out of the total 22 ranks won by the students of the college from 1981 onwards; the department of political science has secured 12 ranks. Credit goes to the department for bringing to VTMNSS College in 1981 the first of the much coveted university ranks. In the year 2002, the department also has the credit of having the highest percentage of pass in the University of Kerala and the largest number in first classes in the Faculty of Arts of the College.
Apart from their academic pursuits, we play an active role in co-curricular activities and socially useful productive work. During natural calamities like the landside at Amboori and the recurrent floods in the area, our students had worked untiringly and contributed their mite to alleviate the misery of the helpless victims. They had also taken part in the election surveys conducted by the Department of political science, Krayavattom, at the time of elections. The department proudly claims that its students are responsible and dependable young men and women who are assets to the institutions they join.
All these students who make it to the top come from economically challenged families with no facilities for learning. It is their sheer hard work supplemented by the constant encouragement and guidance of the dedicated faculty that has made this commendable achievement possible. In addition the department through regular counseling sessions, identifies and helps needy students. Moreover, the Department sponsors the higher studies of deserving students. Former students have made their mark in many walks of life and are seen along the length and breadth of the land.
