The Master of Arts (Social Work in Rural Development) programme has been designed to meet the needs for trained social work professionals in designing and managing rural development programmes and to cater to the increasing demand for development professionals with advanced social work skills. The language of instruction is English. Students found to be weak in the language will have to compulsorily attend English classes on campus. The graduates of this Master’s programme will, therefore, command greater acceptance and recognition by organisations of national and international repute. The Tuljapur Campus of TISS offers an excellent environment for learning and practice of rural development through its innovative academic curriculum and opportunity to interact with field practitioners and social activists in the region. A strong, multidisciplinary faculty drawn from social work, philosophy, sociology, economics, agriculture, etc. teach this programme.

TISS students are highly valued in governmental and non-governmental organisations and agencies for their sound professional skills and rigorous field-based training. The M.A. Social Work in Rural Development postgraduates command excellent job opportunities with such organisations.
