About

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.

Department

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.
