Humanities and Social Sciences

The Department came into existence with the very inception of IIT Kharagpur in 1951. Its objective was to provide value-based liberal education to budding scientists and engineers so that they can become professionals with a difference to understand the social realities. With the passage of time, the role of the Department has widened quite significantly. Currently, the Department houses many disciplines such as English Language & Literature, Communication Studies, Economics, German, Philosophy, Psychology, Human Resource Management, History, Sanskrit and Sociology. The Department is actively engaged in teaching, research, training, and outreach activities. It runs two major programs; one at undergraduate level, 5 yr. integrated M Sc in Economics and another at postgraduate level, Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM). The Department takes up projects and consultancies from public and private agencies to address the challenges they face and provides solutions. In keeping with its multidisciplinary character, it carries out research in diverse and emerging areas of human interest and social concern.
