Rajagiri College of Social Sciences (RCSS) was the first institution established under the banner of Rajagiri Vidyapeetham. Envisaged as a centre of excellence in the field of higher education, RCSS currently provides high quality education, research, training and consultancy in the area of Social Work, Management, Computer Science and Library Science. RCSS began as the Department of Social Work at Sacred Heart College, Thevara in 1955.
