Education as a Social Science is not only confined to more teaching learning perspective. It, rather, focuses a wide range of sociological, historical and normative issues. Simultaneously the philosophical and psychological foundations also reflect its intricate disciplinary nature to the students. Qualitative and quantitative research methodologies and various theories from management studies also make it a unique hybrid and complex field of study.
