Sociology is the study of society, human social interaction and the rules and processes that bind and separate people not only as individual but as members of associations, groups and institutions. Professor Giddings defined sociology as an attempt to account for the origin, growth, structure & activities of society by the operation of physical, vital & psychical causes working together in a process of evolution. Sociology is thus a science which attempts this interpretive understanding of social action to arrive at a causal explanation of its course and effect. Unlike history, it does not restrict itself in the causal analysis of particular events, actions or personalities but on the other hand seeks formulae type concepts and generalized uniformities of empirical processes.

Right from the beginning of sociology introduced as a subject in general course in this college in the year 2004, the department commenced its journey under the total guidance of two faculty members of political science department who have been immensely resourceful academically in the concerned subject. Subsequently, a guest teacher of good academic career joined the department and further strengthened the academic foundation.

The department has already got a sharp response from the students through taking up admission with sociology as combination subject. One massage from the department is that the student will learn sociology ,so relevant for its distinct curriculum , so, relevant for its contribution in social role – making , so important for fomenting social engineering and socio – ethical interaction as well as growing analytical acumen for socio cultural ethos. Not only this , the subject is always welcoming students to its ambient vast day to day social canvas as well as to its veracity of windows to enable the students to score in examination and life.
