Since its inception Dept. has succeded in carrying its legacy of combining text with context to enhance better understanding of the subject and also to provide relevent experiences direct from the field by means of engaging students in various activitis through organizing seminars, workshops, conferences, competitions, educational tours and field visits.

It aims at developing objectivity for analytical understanding of everyday life. Students not only learn to study ones own culture but are also encouraged to study others culture to foster the spirit of multicultrulism and to contribute to the pluralistic ethos of Indian society.

An exemplery effort is being taken to inculcate the global perspective through sociological imagination which would mould them to be a responsible citizen so that they can act as an agent of change in improving the social ties in society.
