POST-GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN RURAL SOCIOLOGY & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
Description & Objectives of the Course
Fundamental change often happens at the local level. Communities thrive when local decision-makers and activists can creatively implement solutions for the social, economic, cultural and environmental challenges the community faces. Under this program the principles and strategies of community development are critically examined with a view to operationalize them.
The objectives of the program are to develop a sound understanding of the background and context of contemporary community development with special emphasis on developing countries. The program looks at the changing role of the state in development and how communities can use their skills to develop themselves including their capacity to assess and critically evaluate community interventions. An understanding of community development strategies is critical to understanding of national development and policy making
