About Department of Sociology
The Department of Sociology focuses its research and teaching around the theme of diversity and inequality - the significant ways in which people and groups differ from one another, particularly in terms of social characteristics/categories. Such a focus allows us to advance a deeper understanding of differences among peoples, which is essential to the implementation of fair social policy and democratic society.
A degree in sociology (bachelor's, master's, and/or doctoral) can lead to a variety of careers, especially given the skills inherent in liberal arts training. As our world continuously evolves, sociology students are well prepared to offer insight into these changes and how best to accommodate them.
