The integrated Bachelor’s and Master’s curriculum in Social Work has been developed with a strong emphasis on the theoretical underpinnings and practice dimensions relevant to social work practice in diverse settings with a focus on issues of vulnerable and marginalised groups. The programme lays emphasis on the disciplinary foundations; the methods of social work practice; and the attitudes, skills and knowledge which inform the practice dimensions. It attempts to integrate the macro with the underlying micro issues in the context of India with some emphasis on the development issues in the north-eastern region of the country.
