About School
Traditionally, the social sciences are understood to be those academic fields of study that employ a scientific method to explore social phenomenon. Social Sciences at Netaji Subhas Open University break from this narrow tradition to provide students with a progressive, innovative and truly interdisciplinary learning environment.

The School of Social Sciences is a newly constituted school emanating from the erstwhile School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Since the establishment of the University in 1997, the disciplines belonging to the language groups (Bengali, English and English Language Teaching) and social sciences (History, Political Science, Public Administrative, Sociology and Economics) were taught under the tutelage of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Of late the School of Social Sciences is created to impart quality education and cater the special needs of the learners of social science disciplines both academically and professionally through open and distance mode of education.

The School of Social Sciences consists of the faculty of Political Science, History, Sociology and Public Administration. The faculty of Social Sciences bears the lineage of strengthening the academic fabric of the Netaji Subhas Open University. Many of our faculty members have earned national and international reputations by their intellectual output in their own academic arena. In line with the general mandate of Netaji Subhas Open University, the School of Social Sciences is strongly orientated, both in teaching and research. The issues of social justice, Question of Caste and Class, nation and nationality, Marxism, Post/Neo Marxism, and concept of sustainability are our core area of research.

The programs offered through the School of Social Sciences reflect a sustained dedication to critical, interdisciplinary approaches to the study of social relations, social structures, social identities and social phenomena. That is to say, our courses and programs ground their analysis of social practices and relations in and across a range of disciplines and fields of study.

The Schoolof also emphasizes the cultivation of critical skills (in developing fresh, innovative and original thinking) that provide students with a firm basis for success in their academic careers.
