Head Message :

The department of Sociology is on its surge and has seen a considerable growth in the past few years with an enriched contribution of the faculty to the teaching and research. Since its inception and keeping-in the mandate of the MANUU Act, the core concern of the department is to impart the sociological knowledge/training to the learners of sociology in Urdu medium and thus anticipates transferring Sociological literature into Urdu medium benefitting the large contingent of Urdu speaking population in India. With this it aspires to take Sociology closer to the door step of the people from diverse socio-cultural, linguistic backgrounds. The department takes special care in teaching and research and to promote talents among its students. Also the faculty and staff shows utmost interest to make the passed out students to settle in their career. We look forward to reach the unreached areas of the country motivating them to join the department and nurture their academic interests. I acknowledge my gratitude and thanks to all my staff for their support and encouragement in planning and implementing the activities of the department. I wish the students, faculty and non-teaching staff of the department all success.
