DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY    OBJECTIVES    PROGRAMMES    SYLLABUS    FACULTY PROFILE

Undergraduate courses, with sociology as one of the subjects seek to develop in students a sociological knowledge, perspective, skills and aptitude that will enable them to think analytically and imaginatively about the structuring and functioning of the society. Applying theories and concepts from classical and contemporary sociological thinkers will undoubtedly assist them to formulate a critical analysis of the social reality. This exposure would guide them in their internships, independent studies, and collaborative research with faculty.

The department encourages a commitment to social justice based on an appreciation of social and intellectual diversity and with a clear awareness of social responsibility. This will inculcate in students the ability to formulate effective, reasoned and convincing arguments.



Objectives

The course, with interdisciplinary inclinations starts by providing a strong foundation to students through the introduction of the dominant sociological theories in the first year. This is followed by understanding and application of classical and contemporary theories keeping the Indian context in mind in the second year. The final year will address more practical oriented papers that would benefit students through its multi-disciplinary orientation: Research Methodology, Sociology of Women, Sociology of Urban Communities and Contemporary Social Issues.

Emphasis on internship in the second year is to consolidate the knowledge students have acquired with the intention that they apply it in an empirical study of institutions that provide social service.
