SOCIAL SCIENCES

India’s rapid economic growth has created an urgent need for a class of scholars, development professionals, administrators and entrepreneurs who can understand government’s policy ecosystem, programs and processes and help solve the most pressing problems. The faculty of Social Sciences deals with a systematized study of society, using macro and micro approaches towards understanding societies; social relationships, institutions, processes, issues, policies, movements; and business organizations thus making the students participative in the society. As humans, it is imperative to engage in critical inquiry and hence deconstruct realities than accepting them as given. An approach to different aspects of life based on a diversity of theoretical perspectives serves to enhance an understanding of life and society. Psychology, Economics, Political Science, History and Sociology constitute the faculty of Social Sciences.
