Department Of Sociology

The Department of Sociology at Sacred Heart College is one of the earliest of its kind in South India. Having been founded in the year 1964, it celebrated its Silver Jubilee in the year 1989.The Department has been elevated to the status of a Post-graduate Department by introducing the M A Programme in Sociology in the Golden Jubilee Year 2014. We have produced nearly 2000 Sociology graduates and qualified professionals. The department is continuing its tradition as one of the college’s foremost centres of excellence, in both academic and extracurricular areas. The Department upholds an unwavering commitment towards educating each generation of students in matters of social relevance and responsibility by providing them opportunities for exposure/outreach/field study programmes other than regular class room study.


The Department is committed to develop scientific, interpretative, and critical capacities in the young generation to understand the social and cultural forces that shape the human experience. We bring theoretical and methodological rigor to understanding complex social and cultural realities both local and global. We promote ways of imagining and re-imagining the common good and encourage the use of knowledge and skills to realize a more just society.


The mission of the Department of Sociology is to promote scientific understandings of social life through teaching, scholarship, and service. By providing rigorous training in disciplinary methods and theories, coupled with a diversity of substantive concentrations and educational experiences, we develop robust sociological imaginations and critical thinking in our students. By encouraging and supporting scholarly research and activities by our faculty, we further the development of sociological knowledge and its application to important social issues.
