School of Social Science


We live in a pivotal time. ‘For the first time, the Earth is being shaped more by humans than by nature. Many geologists and social scientists suggest that we are now living in a new era: the Anthropocene—a period in time where the collective activities of human beings are, for the first time in the history of the Earth, having a bigger influence on the planet’s development than natural processes. Some of the biggest global challenges are man-made: human activities are causing both dramatic climate change and the extinction of animal species.

In addition, we are faced with a myriad of other issues such as terrorism, political extremism, globalisation, gender equality, mass migration, religious freedom and more. The solution to these predicaments is Social Sciences. Social Science is the study of society and the relationship among individuals within society. Social sciences covers a wide spectrum of subjects, including economics, political science, sociology, history, archaeology, anthropology, and law. 2 SRM University Sikkim aims to imbibe in its students the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully meet these challenges and ensure a more equitable, prosperous and secure future for all.
