The Faculty of Social Sciences is a vibrant academic community both in terms of teaching and research. It aims to impart knowledge of society, polity, economy, history and administration to its students to enable them to understand theoretical and practical dimensions of these areas of study. With a focus on in-depth research on societal problems, which also get translated into our Postgraduate programmes as courses for study, the faculty also chalks out new strategies to find solutions to these problems. This remains the focus of research in our M.Phil. and Ph.D. programmes. The faculty lays special emphasis on continuous interaction between the faculty and scholars engaged in research at institutions in different parts of the country.
To upgrade and enhance existing knowledge and to evolve in-depth understanding of new horizons in the discipline, the faculty regularly organizes seminars, conferences, symposia, workshops and special lectures. In the last few years various departments of the faculty have successfully organized such programme. For instance, in the recent past the Department of Economics organized the 89th Annual Conference of Indian Economics Association; the Department of History organized a Conference on 1857-Revisited; and the Department of Political Science organized a Seminar on Human Rights, as well as, on Relevance of Gandhism under the Gandhian Study Centre established by University Grants Commission, New Delhi.
