Religion Philosophy and Sociology (RPS)


HISTORY

In 1980, under autonomy, the department of ethical studies was started and the department was teaching Value Education to all the final year students. The department of Religion and Philosophy was started along with value education in 1985. The department boasts as the only department in Asia that offers Value Education as a government approved programme. Though from the beginning, the department was multidisciplinary teaching Sociology, it was named only as department of Religion and Philosophy. However, later in order to emphasize and recognize Sociology as a discipline and to attract more students to join this department, the department was renamed as Religion, Philosophy and Sociology. By this way, the department gains a unique status in relation to other multidisciplinary departments.
