The aim of the department is to help students gain the necessary skills to critically examine topics on society and social life. In accordance with the university’s philosophy of liberal education, students will also develop useful conceptual and analytical skills that they can use in different settings after graduation.
This program provides a solid foundation for students on the main concepts, theoretical approaches and research methods used in sociology. The basic education given in the department is supported by elective courses. These courses focus on a wide range of topics that reflect the expertise of faculty members such as: media and communication, family sociology, child development, educational sociology, cultural research, race / ethnicity, urban sociology, developmental sociology and political sociology.
On graduation, students will be equipped for work life. Some of our associates continue to pursue post-graduate programs at world-leading universities to pursue academic careers.
