The Department of Social Work was established in September 2008 with an objective to train the prospective social workers for social outreach skills. The curriculum is designed to teach, train and prepare human resources with scientific knowledge and professional acumen. It is designed to inculcate humane concerns and democratic values. It equips the incumbents to take up position in the field of social welfare and development in the country. The programme is aimed at providing socially relevant social work training to the students so that they respond to the field requirements keeping in tune with the contemporary social realities. 

The teaching and training is provided through class room teaching and intensive social work practicum training through community field work, agency based field work, seminars and discussions, study tour, summer placement, rural camp and block placements so as to enable students to develop critical thinking and ability to apply theoretical knowledge in practice of Social Work.
