Concept Note


Social Science Research has assumed great significance in recent times as it concerns itself with the human aspects of the world. In course of time Social Science has come to be recognized as important in contributing towards overall social development. If one considers historical evidences, the important part played by Social Science becomes evident. It may be interesting to note that philosophers like Plato and Aristotle were advocates of Social Science and their philosophies are based on the objectives of Social Sciences. Social Science involves an in-depth study and evaluation of human society and behavior. Quite unlike natural science, social science reveals subjective, objective, inter-subjective and structural aspects of the society. In simple words, it measures the social developments of the society and assesses its limitations as well.

Social Science Research tells us how society functions, helps to understand the existing scheme of things and informs about problems that exist. According to the late Columbia University Sociologist Dr. Robert Merton, “The function of social science research, then is not simply to supply information useful in remedying problems already known, it serves to make the problems known.”

Social Science Research offers us knowledge about the social world and is thus more than a reflection of our opinions and prejudices. It substantiates, refutes, organizes or generates our theories and produces evidence which may challenge not only our own beliefs, but also those of society in general. Its role is to understand and explain social phenomena, to focus attention on particular issues and to challenge conventionally held beliefs about the social world. With regard to the importance that Social Science Research has acquired of late, the Capacity Building programme is being proposed for faculty of Social Science with view to honing their skills towards conducting research in social science.

The programme would attempt to trace all nuances of conducting research in Social Science in an in depth manner. Tracing from the conceptualization of research projects, preparation of research proposals, to intricate details of research methodology and winding up with the procedure of documenting and publishing research findings, the programme would attempt to provide a comprehensive training on Social Science Research.
