Introduced initially as a discipline for the B.A. (General) course from the academic session 1999-2000, the department subsequently has been offering the honours course since 2004-05. The subject has been a popular choice amongst the students since its inception and draws a substantial number of students in both honours and general courses. The sociology curricula being highly relevant and contemporary in its focus have motivated learners beyond its pedagogic interest. Students enrolled in the course have expressed interest in the subject and have participated in seminars and interactive sessions regularly. Initiatives have been taken by the department to supervise curriculum based dissertations and field surveys. Students after graduating in Sociology from this institution enroll for post graduate studies or diploma courses in related field.
