Sociology emerged as the study of European society and Social Anthropology as the study of other society. The distinction was implanted in India too. Sociology tended to be the study of rural and urban dimension of the Indian society and Social Anthropolgy of the tribal society. This distinction besides being problematic is also blurred. The two disciplines, though traditionally located into two departments, are intricately related with each other in regard to the subject they deal and perspectives and approaches they adopt.
In keeping with, the programme is designed to integrate the discipline of Sociology and Social Anthropology with a view to have a comparative and systematic understanding of the society and its institutions. Such a programme is most suited considering the regional location of TISS, Guwahati Campus.
