    Dr. Syed Ashrafur Rahman

    Head of the Department

    Welcome to the Department of Political Studies of Shahjalal University of Science & Technology (SUST). Our department offers exciting opportunities for undergraduate and graduate education. Your experience at SUST will enrich you in many ways. The department is privileged enough with a talented and high qualified group of teachers. They engage students in the classrooms turning the latter active learners. Apart from the lecture method, students are also assigned with other tasks such as seminar paper writing and presentation. The concerned course teachers provide them with a clear course outline at the very outset of the semester. The department mainly focuses on the in-depth theoretical understanding of different courses of political science, and education and research in social sciences including politics and governance. Students are assessed in various ways such as written examination, mid-semester examination, viva-voce, and seminar presentation/internship. The assessment procedure is clearly defined and documented in the exam ordinance of the entity. There are opportunities to work with faculty members on both your own research projects or on the research projects of professors as a research assistant.
    An education at SUST in the setting of Sylhet is a great experience. We hope this visit to our website will reveal to you the exciting challenges and opportunities that await you in the department.
