Faculty of Social Studies has been established with the aims to inculcate scientific temper and increasing practical knowledge with human and social values. It foresees to develop a centre of teaching and research with a global impact through outstanding and best programmes introduced by the disciplines of English, Sociology, Public Administration, Geography, Economics and History. As a graduate and PhD in Social Studies the students will have a foundation for better understanding and engaging with the globalized world. They will be equipped with the tools needed to make sense of the changing social world and contribute solutions to difficult social problems of the new world order. The department has an inter-disciplinary approach that focuses on recognising and analysing social elements that shape our lives and offer a unique prospective to develop a social understanding and promote social concern and social action.
Today, with the completion of eight years of existence we have gained respect across the states for our work and academic achievements. In keeping with the overall objectives of Dr. K. N. Modi University, Faculty of Social Studies not only helps students filter and integrate the knowledge that already exists, but also develop new and deeper insights to add to the stock of existing knowledge. This is made possible by rigorous classroom teaching, interaction among students from different disciplines where students are taught both the concepts necessary for scientific enquiry and the skills needed to solve instant issues and problems.
The department also intensely believes in a balance between knowledge and career skills at one end and self-awareness, values driven leadership development at the other. Accordingly, there is an important emphasis on experiential and joyful learning, strategic thinking, creativity and mentoring.
Faculty of Social Studies has a very well equipped communication lab.
Workshops, seminars and lectures are organized throughout the year to sensitize, update and upgrade the students and faculty members to get exposed to ideas and teaching methodology.
We develop our students to contribute effectively in multiple decision-making and leadership roles and flourish to succeed wherever they live and work in the world. In the coming years, our department plans to expand the horizons and scopes of work with students.
None of the achievements of the year would have been possible without the efforts of our dedicated faculty members. We have every confidence that Faculty of Social Studies of Dr. K. N. Modi University will continue to perform and reform the lives of the students by providing knowledge, guidance, mentoring and solutions to the issues.
