Year of Establishment : 1979
Year of First Intake of Student : 1979

The department was started under NEHU Mizoram Campus in 1979 with only one regular faculty. The intake capacity at the beginning was 20 students, which has been raised to 50. Although the department has 8 sanctioned faculty positions, it is currently manned by 3 regular faculties and 5 Guest Faculty due to the retirement of 4 senior faculties and deputation of one Professor at the university administration. It is expected that the vacant teaching posts will be filled up sooner or later. In spite of the shortage of faculty, the department functions smoothly and offers M.Phil. and Ph.D. courses in addition to the post graduate course. A number of research and consultancy projects have been undertaken by the faculties with funding supports from the government, and also from national and international agencies. In addition, the expertise of the faculties are, from time to time, effectively used for framing and monitoring projects and policies of the state and central governments.
