Brief Profile

The Department of Women Education was established in 2004. The Department offers Post Graduate, and Ph.D. programs in Women’s Studies since its inception. A multi-pronged approach is called for at all levels in developing, strengthening, harnessing the female resource of the country. Despite being the most unconventional and a new entrant into academic, Women’s Studies is simultaneously a discourse, a methodology and an agenda for action.

The subject matter of this course is “Women” and hence it transcends boundaries of disciplines and eventually assumes inter-disciplinary nature. The syllabus for the course is designed with an aim to empower students with adequate knowledge of their rights and privileges and it trains them to emerge as successful change-agents in the desired direction of social transformation. Recently, Women’s Studies is included as an approved subject of study for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) with stipend by the University Grants Commission to qualify for Lectureship in Colleges/ Universities.
