Department of Sociology and Social Work primarily aims at excellence in teaching, research, and community service. Our department advance cutting edge research and teach in most Sociological and Social Work specialties. Both Sociology and Social Work help students understand patterns of social life, including the impact of social institutions and culture upon people’s life. Therefore, the two programmes of the department explain the root causes and persistent social problems. Besides, students learn how to think critically and how to work with data. Sociology and Social Work is relevant for students seeking to help navigate our contemporary world and gain the skills and knowledge necessary to become leaders in a complex society. Thus, we combine intellectual rigour with a commitment to public service through our research, teaching, and service on campus and beyond.
