Sociology and Social Work

The Department of Sociology and Social Work at CHRIST (Deemed to be University) was founded in the year 2017 through a merger of the two separate Departments of Sociology and Social Work. Sociology Department was started in the year 1971 and Social Work Department in the year 2004. The department offers Undergraduate programmes under the triple major system with the departments of Psychology, Economics, International Studies and History, and English Studies. It offers three Postgraduate programmes, namely Master of Arts in Applied Sociology, Master of Social Work (with two distinct streams - Clinical and Community Practice, and Human Resource Development and Management) and a Master of Science in Sustainable Development. The Department also offers two Postgraduate Diplomas in Life Skills for Leadership and Community Development, and Disaster Management. The Department has research programmes including PhD and Post-doctoral fellowships.

Mission

Nurturing students as responsible citizens with a global perspective and local action through critical academic and field engagements that contribute to sustainable development

Overview

The Department of Sociology and Social Work focuses on academic excellence and skill acquisition of students. Thereby they outperform in all sectors like the corporate sector, government, and non-government. Students engage in pursuit of learning in an atmosphere of critical thinking, spirit of inquiry and scientific temper. Values such as selflessness, devotion and service are blended with leadership skills, social sensitivity and business acumen that transform them into leaders of tomorrow. Inspired by the power of conquering adversities they learn to respond to the  ever changing  lives and  needs of people.

The department initiates programmes that cater to the emerging needs of the various stakeholders in the society. It undertakes research projects, consultancies, intervention programmes and extension activities, organises seminars, workshops, rural exposure camps and field work as part of its curriculum. The value of learning through service is significantly incorporated in the academic programmes. The curriculum offered by the Department provides opportunities for the holistic development of the students and blends learning from the classroom with experiential learning.

Message

from the HoD

Our mission is to nurture our students to enable them to become responsible citizens with a global perspective through critical academic and field engagements. This enables them to inculcate 21st-century skills and contribute towards social change and sustainable development. This mission is of utmost importance today as we work with learners in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and unpredictable environment.

The disciplines of Sociology and Social Work provide critical insights into social dynamics, address social injustices, promote social change, inform policy and practice, enhance well-being, and tackle global challenges. These disciplines provide valuable perspectives, knowledge, and skills to navigate and address the complex social challenges of our time to build a more equitable and inclusive society for all.

The Department offers multidisciplinary undergraduate programmes and postgraduate programmes in Applied Sociology and Social Work with specialisations in Clinical and Community Practice or Human Resource Development and Management. We also offer an interdisciplinary postgraduate programme in Sustainable Development and Doctoral programmes in Sociology and Social Work.

We focus on holistic learning, and the teaching and learning strategies used reflect this focus. Our students engage with experiential learning and benefit from our numerous collaborations with educational institutions worldwide, Government, and Non-government organizations. This has contributed to the development of a dynamic alumni body committed to the betterment of the department, institution, and the communities they work with while reinforcing the relevance of these social sciences in the world today.

Our highly qualified, experienced, and committed faculty members at the Bangalore Central Campus and the Delhi NCR Campus,  have a strong passion for teaching and research and contribute to the overall academic community. Our department, regularly ranked amongst the best Sociology and Social Work Departments in the country, is committed to providing the highest standard of academic excellence even as we pursue the larger goal of whole-person education and nurture future citizens who are socially sensitive, aware, and responsible.
