Chairman message:  DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL WORK & SOCIOLOGY

At the dawn of today the subjects of Social Work and Sociology has got significant value. The rapid global development, social change and dynamics has made survival competition based and complex. These developments, though positive as well, has still created complexities and social problems “the terrorism, racial conflicts, gender discrimination, economic-social and political systems conflicts, economic gaps and inequalities, disasters, mass corruption, Governance problems, civilizations issues and a number of outcomes of these problems has challenged the human survival.

 

Further, with particular reference to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, which has become the focal points of these problems- has attracted the global attention. Though a number of developmental strategies have been applied for solution of these problems but the situation has not improved significantly. Inspite of fact that Pakistan is the tomorrow’s greatest world power INSHA ALLAH- it is having greater geo-political significance, best ideology, abundant natural and human resources- is still facing a lot of problems. Adopting positive approach, these problems and challenges could be turned into development and opportunities for future success, INSHA ALLAH.

 

It is a known fact that all streams of knowledge, either social or other sciences are for welfare and development of human being and of the society. The disciplines of Social Work and Sociology at the undergraduate and post graduate levels can provide the academic and professional knowledge with diversified and dynamic applications. Such course combinations are made which meet the global academic standards and prepare the market oriented professionals with a sound social understanding and equipped with practical skills which are necessary for solution of social problems and for development of society, INSHA ALLAH.

Social Work & Sociology

Introduction to the Dept DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL WORK & SOCIOLOGY

 

The need of Social Sciences was realized in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan right from its independence but the idea of doing good to the needy persons of the society and well-being of the underprivileged is prevalent in the basic teachings of the great religion Islam and of the Holy Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him. When Pakistan came into being in 1947, it has faced many problems such as lack of resources, lack of manpower, various Social Problems like poverty, illiteracy, poor health, unemployment, crime, child labour, beggary, agricultural problem etc. The experts from United Nations were invited in early 1950. They worked out the strategy and advised the Government to introduce the subject of Social Work at Graduate and Postgraduate level. It is an applied Social Science where the students are taught the basic methods to help the people and organize them to help themselves in solving their problems at individual, group and community level.

In 1953, the subject of Social Work was started in the University of Punjab, in 1956 in the University of Karachi, in 1974 in the University of Quetta- Baluchistan, and in December 1976 in the University of Peshawar. Similarly, the subject of Sociology was introduced in Pakistani Universities at various times and finally in 1982 the Department of Social Work University of Peshawar started Postgraduate degree programme in sociology also. In 1994 the Discipline of Sociology got independent status as Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at the University of Peshawar in this province. While considering the importance and need of Social Work and Sociology, Kohat University of Science & Technology (KUST) decided to introduce these subjects, and the Department of Social Work and Sociology was established in September 2007.
