The broad thrust of the Department is two-fold: One, to promote and project the discipline as vocationally viable; two, to situate Sociology of Development in the context of Odisha society with special reference to its disparities, deprivations and marginalization and to promote fieldwork as a tradition in the practice of Sociology. The Department’s alumni have been placed in almost all domains of work – politics, bureaucracy, media, academics, management, social work, and the development sector.
