Syllabus and Time Table
Brief History of Department
Teaching and research in social work was started in
Lucknow University in the first phase of the development of
professional social work education in India. J.K, Institute of
Sociology, Ecology and Human Relations was established in 1948 under
the inspiring leadership of the doyen of social sciences in India,
Late Prof. Radha Kamal Mukerjee. As Director of the Institute, Prof.
Mukerjee started the Diploma in Social Service in 1949. This was
superseded by a two year Master's Programme in 1952. In 1954, the
degree of Master of Social technique (MST) was awarded. In 1955, the
nomenclature of MST was changed to Master of Social Work (MSW). In
1956, a composite Department of Sociology and Social Work was
constituted by taking out Sociology from the erstwhile Department of
Economics, and Social Work from the J.K. Institute of Sociology,
Ecology and Human Relations. The composite Department was again
bifurcated in 1972 to create an independent Department of Social
The Department of Social Work, Lucknow University

Department in the country to start Ph.D. and D.Litt. degree
programmes in Social Work, and had the distinction of having
produced the first Ph.D. and the first D.Litt. In addition to Prof.
Radha Kamal Mukerjee, the Department had the credit of having on its
teaching staff some of the early pioneers of social work education
in India. These teachers of towering height excelled in academic
attainments and made a distinct contribution to the development of
professional social work education in the country. They have left
behind a legendary legacy, which the department is pursuing with
determination and distinction. The Department has produced a large

city of Lucknow. In order to give a positive thrust to the
programme, three new programmes were started in the year 1989-90,
