Department of Sociology

The Department of Sociology offers students the option of minoring in sociology, with programmes on the classical foundations of the discipline, the fundamental categories of sociological thought, and also, contemporary advances in the discipline dealing with problems of our modern world. Our programmes seek to equip students with a critical eye that sees past commonsensical explanations for complex and often mysterious phenomena, and also, provide students with various analytical tools to construct models that grapple with the complexity of sociological problems.
