About the Department


Faculty members represent an effective blend of wisdom and energy representing a diverse range of expertise in different domains of sociological knowledge. Sociology of Gender, Health and Environment are some of the areas of expertise of the Department. Faculty members also work hard to impart rigorous field-work based research training to the students. Active engagement of all the faculty members in different areas of College administration is also noteworthy.


The Department of Sociology is a relatively new department of the college, established in 1988. At the time of inception, the department had three full time teaching posts, a new post has been created by the Education Department, WB, in the year 2005.


Teachers give individual attention to students and their respective improvement with a holistic approach incorporating parents and devising effectual communication models to shape their socialization in order to elicit out best academic responses from them. Illustrations in shape of audio visual aids and judicious explanations help in inculcating sociological imaginations among students.


Faculty members could achieve good repute at local, national and global levels. Our students too are not lagging behind and they are increasingly marking their footprints at different universities and premier institutes of higher education across India. While achievements of faculty members include Fulbright scholarship and different grants and awards, students also regularly participate and become victorious in different events like Young Sociologists’ Competition organised by Christ University, Bangalore and the likes. The department also successfully organized a number of state, national and international seminars in the recent past.
