Department of Sociology (AWARDED UGC-SAP DRS-I, 2016)
The Department of Sociology at Tezpur University was established in 2006 with a Masters programme. Subsequently, it launched a PhD programme in 2008. The department is dedicated toward creating competent and socially sensitive graduates through rigorous teaching/training programmes and extension activities.
The curriculum lays emphasis on the teaching and learning of general concerns of sociology as well as the issues of sociological significance in northeastern India which constitute a special focus of the teaching and research of the department. A combination of participatory, experiential and creative pedagogy is used for transacting the curricula with a view to fostering dialogue, mutual learning and critical reflection. The pedagogical practices also utilise an inter-disciplinary framework combining classical approaches in conjunction with emerging areas of research.
