HOD’s Desk

The Postgraduate Department of Social Work (Shift – II) at the Madras School of Social Work was started during 2007 and it aims to impart quality education for the all-round development of professional social workers through a value-added, market-driven and indigenously relevant course in the fields of Human Resource Management, Community Development, and Medical & Psychiatric Social Work.

The two-year course is focused on providing the students with sound theoretical knowledge along with skills that will enable them to bring about change in the overall quality of life of individuals and communities. A blend of both classroom learning and a variety of fieldwork components facilitates the application of theory to practice and prepares the students in this era of competitive workforce. The strong culture, vibrant atmosphere and robust curriculum help the students to be creative and prepare to excel in today’s demanding work environment.
