DEPARTMENT OF social work

welcome to the department of social work

The Department of Social Work dwells in the belief of creating dynamic and enthusiastic social workers that can serve the society in the best form. We, as a department believe in the creation of a strong foundation that in the long run will be able to help people to stand firm against the odds of the society. As we all dream about a society free from any waywardness and strife, we work to help people turn their dreams into reality. As the motto of social work is “to help people to help themselves”, our department tries to put pieces together to make one self sufficient.

Social work being a field based course, the Department runs its field action programmes to demonstrate the relevance of social work interventions in dealing with social issues and problems and also to strengthen its theoretical foundation. We try to give the students the best exposure to the field reality in the most authentic way. In the same manner, the students are being taught to adapt to the culture of the society as a whole. Role-play being an important and inevitable aspect of social work, students are encouraged to learn and execute as per the need of the hour.
