Research and Expertise

The college has a vigorous research culture with six of its departments (Economics, Commerce, Botany, Chemistry, Physics, Zoology) being recognized research centres facilitating research leading to the award of Ph. D. by the MG University, Kottayam. As many as 32 Ph. D degrees have been awarded through these departments in the last five years. In addition, over 400 research articles have been published in national and international research journals by its research departments. Currently, 47 scholars are engaged in research in the college.

Sacred Heart Advanced Research Endeavour (SHARE) is an interdisciplinary forum, consisting of students, teachers and research scholars, which mentors research initiatives in the college. The forum not only provides a platform for young researchers to hone their aptitude but also provides them active support through lectures, workshops, seminars and discussions on frontier areas of research, besides arranging seed money (through SHRI or SH Research Initiative), facilitating consultancy work and patenting. The forum also facilitates interaction among research guides in order to share their expertise and experiences and provide mutual help to produce high quality research output. The forum encourages a much needed culture of teamwork among researchers. Coordinator: Dr. M.S. Francis, Dept. of Botany
