Just like the discipline of Natural Sciences, the Social Sciences too have been compelled to move from pure theoretical accumulation of knowledge towards its application, especially with an aim to minimize human misery and to promote the project of human development by developing appropriate strategies at the grass root level. Social Work is one such discipline that has evolved out of such a realization within the realm of social sciences that caters to the socially marginalized, poor, deprived and the disadvantaged groups through the experts trained for the purpose. Imparting training in Social Work has also been necessitated by the growing need for partnerships between the State, Civil society and the Non- governmental & private actors, in an effort to bring all sections of society under the ambit of development.
The Panjab University has started Masters of Social Work (M.S.W.) degree programme that combines education, practice, and community service for preparing the postgraduates to work with individuals, families, groups, and communities in a variety of human service settings. The M.S.W. programme intends to instill in its students a commitment to improve social conditions and address social problems. The .mission. is that our students shall be the job creators and not only the job seekers.
