Department of Sociology, Tilak Maharashtra Vidyapeeth (TMV), Pune


Department of Sociology

The Nehru Institute of Social Sciences was established in 1969 as a post graduate department for inter-disciplinary learning. A Masters course in social sciences with a specialization in Sociology was offered from 1996. As per the tenth plan allocations for the Vidyapeeth and the suggestions of the then UGC Chairman Prof. Nigvekar (ref. No. D. O. No. F. 2-5/2002 X plan) it was decided that all four departments that comprised the Nehru Institute of Social Sciences be separated into autonomous departments. Thus, a separate Post-Graduate Department of Sociology came into being with effect from September 2005. It has since then embarked upon its journey towards becoming a centre of higher learning and research in Sociology.
