Department of Sociology

The Department of Sociology was established in January 1993 and the first batch of M.A and Ph.D. degree students were admitted during the 1993-94 academic year. In the span of over one and half decades, the Department has trained a fairly large number of talented Post-graduate students drawn from different parts of the country. From its inception, the Department has focused on understanding the complexities of modern social life through the application of advanced sociological theories and methods within an interdisciplinary framework. Besides, our instructional methods pay special attention to developing skills in use of computers not only for data analysis but also as a tool for sourcing information and internet. The students are encouraged to acquire critical reading and data analysis skills through rigorous training.

Our alumni are employed in reputed governmental as well as corporate sector organizations. Many have found lucrative employment abroad. The research areas undertaken by students and faculty members cover wide range of issues of public concern like the effects of economic development on society and culture, problems of weaker sections, gender and society, disaster management, environmental issues, social movements, etc.
