Social Sciences have moved from pure theoretical accumulation of knowledge towards its application, especially with an aim to minimize human misery and to promote the project of human development by developing appropriate strategies at the grass-roots level. Social Work is one such discipline that has evolved out of such a realization within the realm of social sciences that caters to the socially marginalized, poor, deprived and the disadvantaged groups through the experts trained for this purpose. Imparting training in Social Work has also been necessitated by the growing need for partnerships between the State, Civil society and private voluntary organizations in an effort to bring all sections of society under the ambit of development. The Panjab University started the Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) degree programme (2 years, 4 Semesters) in 2007. It combines education and practice for preparing the postgraduates to work with individuals, families, groups, and communities in a variety of human service settings. The M.S.W. programme intends to instill in its students, a commitment to improve social conditions, address social problems and raise their voice against social injustice. The Centre is housed in the building of Emerging Areas, near Student Centre and behind the Department of Botany, Panjab University, Chandigarh. There is a dress code for the formal functions and field work forms a mandatory part of the programme.
