Welcome To the Department of

Sociology

INTRODUCTION OF SOCIOLOGY

In simple words, Sociology is the study of society. It is the study of human social relationships and institutions. It is comparatively new to a social science involving the study of the social lives of people, groups, and societies.

“What makes it unique among academic disciplines is its focus from many 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 individuals and society, between our private domain and the public life, and between freedom and constraint – these are the heart of Sociology. Adopting this way of seeing – C. Wright Mills called it “the sociological imagination” – helps us understand how powerfully the world in which we live shapes what we do and how we do it.”

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 related to social research, 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.

 

What can you do with a Sociology degree?

With a BS in Sociology, many opportunities open up to you. You can decide to continue on into graduate studies, working towards an MS, Mphil, and a Ph.D. From there you can focus on teaching, researching, or both. You can also leave the University after the completion of your BS or MA completed graduate degrees and joins the broader workforce. Many Sociology graduates find themselves in unique and fulfilling jobs, in areas such as politics; teaching and education; administration, business, and communication; public relations; community affairs; and research. You could find yourself working with the federal government or with a National or International non-profit organization. Maybe you'll be working for the Government or the private sector. The possibilities are endless because with a BS or MA in Sociology, you are given the tools to think critically, apply problem-solving strategies using your acquired researching tools, and communicate your ideas both written and orally in an organized fashion
