About

Find out more information about Sociology

Sociology is a study field which deals with human social behaviour. It can be also defined as the study of the origins, organization, institutions, and development of human society. Sociology is a part of social science and aims to acquire knowledge about human social factors by performing empirical and critical analysis through qualitative and quantitative techniques, interpretative, hermeneutic and philosophic approaches. The study field looks into the factors such as deviance, social stratification, social class, culture, social mobility, law and religion and develops scientific knowledge. Sociologists try to understand the issues that influence society. Sociology students discover answers to critical questions for our society like: how is culture created? Is social equality possible?

Students enrolled in a Bachelor or Master in Sociology will develop their communication, analytical and research skills as well as their understanding of various human aspects and behaviours.

Graduates of sociology degrees usually follow one of these paths: criminal justice, human services, education, research, policy or business. Find work in diverse and versatile fields as a public relations representative, rehabilitation counsellor, journalist, advocacy expert, state agent, and many more.
