Department of Sociology

The Postgraduate Department of Sociology was established in 1966 under the dynamic leadership of Sr. Marie Cecile CSST who went on to become the Principal of the College. Ours was the first department to offer Sociology at the postgraduate level exclusively for women. 5 years later, the B.A. Sociology course was started in 1971. 1985 was a landmark for the department as it was raised to the status of a research centre. 


The department of Sociology envisions excellence in teaching, research, service and support activities for the greater understanding and resolution of societal problems, and to promote an intellectually rich and culturally diverse academic community of faculty and students.


The discovery and dissemination of new knowledge are central to the mission of the Department of Sociology. Through its focus on teaching and learning, research and discovery, and outreach and engagement, the department creates, conveys and applies knowledge to expand personal growth and opportunity, advance social and community development, foster social responsibility and improve the quality of life.
