Tri-Chandra Multiple Campus bears a glorious academic history. It is the oldest academic institution to provide Natural and Social Science education to the students who in the history served the nation state from the different dignified posts such as ministers, government officials, university professors, and the famous figures of national and international academic arena. Masters’ program in sociology was introduced along with the separate department of sociology in 2053 BS. Since students hoped for a career and future scope in Sociology the Initial academic years were crowded with 2000 to 3000 enrollment in each academic session. Later it has limited 400 to 500 until the end of the annual system. From 2073, the semester system was introduced and the number reduced to below 200. Semester based learning systems aim to develop profound and intensive understanding of sociological theories and research methods with the current social issues and agendas.
This system of learning demands students’ active participation/presentation and regular attendance with term paper writing and internal examination for 40% evaluation. They appear in the external exams for 60% marks at the end of each semester. Rigorous study and participatory modality of learning, Evaluation in GPA grading in 5 different categories (A, A-,B+, B, B-) with 2000 full marks, 60 credit hours study for four semesters, 6 months for one semester are the fundamental features of the semester system learning. Since last year, in order to promote theoretical as well as practical grounds of research methods and techniques, in financial initiation of the Campus, we organize field visits to the students.
