It was such a privilege to pursue both of my interests at the same time. The years that I have spent here, have added value to my life and helped in shaping my future.

I will forever be grateful to Rajagiri for handholding me in bettering myself and for the innumerable experiences I was provided with that enabled me to go beyond my own inhibitions and achieve my true potential.

“MSW course provided me a greater level of confidence to take-up the challenges. During the course I have been given opportunity to undertake field work with NGOs in other states like Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

“I entered Rajagiri College of Social Sciences for doing my BSW, 6 years back, I was not contented with ‘profit and loss’ overview of the world and my thirst for a deeper engagement and learning about the society, led me to choose this wonderful course in Rajagiri. This was one of the major turns in my life and looking back at it, I’m truly happy. This course not only offered a textual understanding about my surrounding but I got to experience layers of explorative learning with field work in each semester. Rajagiri also offered various avenues for my personal growth too. I was the President of the students’ union named ‘SWARAJ’ which helped me work on my leadership skills under the guidance of a well experienced faculty team. All the experience I gathered those 3 years and forward, is truly helping me, as I currently work as a Social Work educator.”
As a human being, I believe that the core of man’s spirit comes from new experiences, and to have got the opportunity to do Bachelor of Social Work at Rajagiri College of Social Sciences has been truly fulfilling to my spirit. Even though Social Work wasn’t my interest initially, it became my passion after going through the social work training I received here. I was hesitant to join Rajagiri due to my bias that being in Kerala wouldn’t provide exposure to the larger world, but the exposure I received here with regard to organizational visits, concurrent fieldwork, summer placement, club activities, conferences and the world within library, was more than I could’ve ever hoped for. Rajagiri opened my eyes to the realities of human life I was ignorant of. Every aspect of this institute, be it academic or extra-curricular, has helped a lot in developing myself multifold. Now, as I am pursuing Post Graduate Diploma in Rural Management at Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA) the fire of social work still burns bright. I will always be a social worker by spirit whichever profession I take up because what I’ve learnt during my BSW journey would always remain and reflect in my actions.
"Throughout my 3 years of Bachelor of Social work at Rajagiri College of Social Sciences I had countless opportunities to develop interpersonal skills, Intrapersonal skills, leadership skills and proactive thinking through various programs and events organized by the Department of Social Work.

I found the course very interesting, challenging and holistic. Unlike in other colleges, ‘Rajagiri Centre for Behavioural Sciences and Research’ (RCBSR) ensures that the course they provide goes beyond the university curriculum by including additional useful courses like PEBL (Psychology Experiment Building Language). The faculties are very competent and supportive and encourage students to challenge themselves academically in each step of the way. The faculties do a very good job of motivating the students to open up their horizons and to actually seek new knowledge and concepts rather than just mug up whatever is in the curriculum. The department does not only focus on developing their student’s academic and research potentials but also strives hard to mold them into socially responsible and adept individuals. The department takes up various initiatives to meet the requirements of the needy in the form of free medical camps, flood relief etc. Overall, the course has definitely gifted me with an enriching and growing experience as an individual as well as a student of psychology.
