The Masters Programme in Sociology aims to impart in-depth sociological knowledge based on critical comprehension and analysis of social dynamics. In terms of content it focuses on the issues of development of the largest section of the population. Specifically this Programme reflects on:

  • The rapid processes of social transformation (caused by globalisation), penetration of ICT, expansion of new frontiers of knowledge, paradigm shift in development strategy, holocaust of global terrorism, resurgence of local resistance against domination, grass-roots assertion of the marginalized groups to get the share of power);
  • Various theories, concepts and methods applied to comprehend these processes; and
  • Empirical situations of emerging social processes and their inter-linkages with the global, regional and local manifestations.
