During the institution of the University in 1916, four faculties were constituted viz., Arts, Science, Engineering and Technology, and Medicine. Seperate Boards of Studies and Boards of Examiners were constituted in 28 subjects. The University was also administering 12 other educational institutions.
To strengthen the research and training activities in the field of Social Work the University of Mysore established an independent Department of Studies in Social Work in January 1990, bifurcating the Social Work Course from the PG Department of Sociology.
For the first two years after the establishment of the MSW course in the department of Sociology the University offered the course under semester pattern. In the year 1979 the annual system was adopted. The semester scheme has been reintroduced from the academic year 2001-02.
