The Department of Social
Work was established in 1961 and it has continuously responded to
the societal and corporate needs by developing trained professional
social workers. The department boasts of having very successful alumni.
The department strives to strike the
right balance by creating a strong base of theoretical inputs combined
with a rigorous Industrial /NGO exposure of nearly 12 credit hours,
through the fieldwork training which is an important part of the
curriculum. Through this training, students are provided opportunities
to integrate their theoretical knowledge with the practical world
and enquire hands on experience to deal with the variety of complex
societal problems as challenges. The students are placed in government
and non government organizations for obtaining knowledge in the fields
of community development, school social work, and medical social
work. The students of M.A. final year are bound to carry-out research
projects to be submitted at the end of the year.
Students are involved
in theoretical discussions, research activities, symposia, lectures
and dialogues with different NGO’s. Assessment is by means of
examinations (semester examination and midterm tests) assignments and
other written and oral presentation.
