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.

It undertakes research projects, consultancies, intervention programmes and extension activities, organises seminars, workshops, rural exposure camps and field work as part of its curriculum.
