The School of Humanities & Social Sciences
M.Phil. / Ph.D. Programme in Economic Studies
Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Educational and Research Institute was declared by Government of India through its Ministry of Human Resource Development as an institution deemed-to-be-University under Section 3 of University Grants Commission (UGC) Act, 1956. It was formally inaugurated on 4 July 2005, the day of mahasamadhi (passing away) of Swami Vivekananda who envisioned just a couple of days before he passed away that Belur Math would develop into an all-round University. Our new University in Swamiji’s hallowed name, has decided to set up a School of Humanities and Social Sciences under which M.Phil./Ph.D. programme is being started in Economic Studies. We are already running an M.Phil./Ph.D. programme in Bengali Studies and are contemplating a similar programme in Philosophical Studies.
