Master of Arts in Social Work (Dalit and Tribal Studies and Action) is an intensive and theoretically engaging field with the academic programme premised within a Dalit and Tribal Episteme. It is located within Anti Oppressive Social Work and articulates bottom up, indigenous perspectives under the rubric of Dalit and Tribal Social Work. The programme follows a meta-discipline approach to knowledge acquisition and brings within its theoretical ambit, subjects such as Ontology, Epistemology, Ethics and Aes- thetics, Social and Political Philosophy and Dalit and Tribal Knowledge systems. Students are exposed to the latest theoretical debates from a meta-discipline approach pertaining to Adivasi peoples, the Dalit reality, Indian State and global geopolitics.

The programme uses critical pedagogy (CCE Model) led by faculty who are renowned for their ability to facilitate the process. Academically oriented students dedicated to the empowerment of Dalits and Tribes and students interested in understanding Indian structural realities from the lived experiences of Dalits and Tribes would greatly beneit from the programme. Those who have a degree in History, Human Geography, Anthropology, Sociology, Cultural Studies, Peace and Conlict Studies, Political Science and any Humanities subject would find the programme both challenging and fufilling. Students of Bachelors in Social Work with interest in Dalits and Tribes would be greatly enriched by the theoretical depth that the programme offers. Activists with any academic back- ground having few years of experience with people’s movements would ind the programme extremely in- sightful and engaging. The programme is the first of its kind in the world, providing students with wide theoretical exposure to international politico historical and political economic discourses situated within the lived and shared experiences of Dalits in South Asia and Adivasis from India and other regions of the world.
