Department of Sociology

Introduction

Sociology Department focuses on the systematic understanding of society, institutions and human social relationships. The fundamental aim of Sociology is to understand how human action and consciousness both shape and are shaped by social structures. Sociology has many sub-sections of study ranging from drastic changes to social stability, from deviance to conformity, from religion to politics, from individual dispositions to collective consciousness. Sociology is the study of individuals and society. What makes it unique among academic disciplines is its focus from a myriad of angles, on the linkages between our individual experience and the context of the wider society in which we live. Investigating the social ties between individual and society, between our private realm and the public sphere, and between freedom and constraint – these are the heart of Sociology.
A degree in Sociology gives you the skills needed to see society and human interactions in a different way. You will learn qualitative and quantitative methodologies, along with gaining a theoretical base. The skills learned from your degree will benefit you in future job positions or academic pursuits in a graduate program.
