Social Work

SW Introduction


The program of social work has been introduced to prepare a person as a social work professional by enhancing his commitment to democracy, peace, human rights, peoples empowerment, social justice, and human diversity. As part of the educational experience, the program provides students with opportunities to develop appropriate attitudes, skills and critical perspectives imbued with spirituality in providing services in the public, corporate, non-profit development sectors and civil society.

There are number of NGOs working in the region, which need trained human power. This department substantially caters to this need.

Professional social workers deal with social issues and problems and work in such areas as local self governance, rural development, development of scheduled castes and scheduled tribes, welfare of the persons with disabilities (both mental & physical), women and children, care for the aged, sex and child abuse, correctional administration, public health, drug addiction, poverty and unemployment, slum improvement, conflict-resolution, family & marriage counseling, labour welfare and the like.
