Department of Social Work
Though unheard of a few decades ago, the field of Social Work is gradually gaining impetus in the world by virtue of its robust nature and the all encompassing welfare aspect that Social work brings along with it. Today, a well acknowledged profession, the role of a social worker is sought for in almost every field of the society be it in the aspects of personal or professional well being of individuals and groups.

 “The primary mission of the social work profession is to enhance human well-being and help meet basic human needs of all people, with particular attention to the needs and empowerment of people who are vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty. A historic and defining feature of social work is the profession’s focus on individual well-being in a social context and the well-being of society. Fundamental to social work is attention to the environmental forces that create, contribute to, and address problems in living.” --- The National Association of Social Workers.
