Sociology is the systematic study of human society. It looks at social behavior, culture, social institutions, grouping within a society, and the relationships between different groups in society. Sociology helps us to identify social issues within our society and gives us conceptual tools to understand those issues so that we can have a society that is better for all of its members.

Students who study Sociology will learn to look at their own society and other societies in new ways, to question assumptions, to understand the society from the research of others, to record observations from a neutral position and to analyze them objectively, and to interpret their finding, all within an ethical framework.

Sociology helps orient students in terms of their future life, so that they learn skills helpful in many areas of business, government, and non-governmental organizations, as well as their personal lives. The Department of Sociology’s goal is to have students understand themselves and society at a family, group, local, regional, national, and global level. The Sociology Department is part of the Faculty of Social Sciences.
