Since its inception in 1959, the Ph.D. Programme at the Department of Sociology has produced more than hundred doctorates. Apart from being one of the leading programmes in the country, it is among the best of its kind in this region and continues to attract many students from Asia, Africa, and other parts of the globe.
The Ph.D. Programme is administered by the Departmental Research Committee (D.R.C.), a statutory committee mandated by University ordinances that also govern its membership, and under the overview of the Board of Research Studies in the Social Sciences (B.R.S.S.).
