Department of Sociology

In the academic world, Sociology is considered one of the social sciences. It is the scientific study of society, patterns of social relationships, social interaction, and culture. The term ‘Sociology’ was first used by Frenchman Auguste Compte in the 1830s when he proposed a synthetic science uniting all knowledge about human activity.

Sociologists study all things human, from the interactions between two people to the complex relationships between nations or multinational corporations. While sociology assumes that human actions are patterned, individuals still have room for choices. Becoming aware of the social processes that influence the way humans think, feel, and behave plus having the will to act can help individuals to shape the social forces they face.
