As part of the Faculty of Literature and Humanities prior to the establishment of the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Department of Sociology is the first and oldest department in the faculty.
Sociology is the science of our social life in all its dimensions, and it aims to expand our knowledge about problems regarding our societies and collective life. To tackle those problems, our students will not only learn about the various fields in the social sciences, but will be skilled in theoretical and methodological approaches to social science research.
By the end of their study programs, students are able to:
- Conduct social, cultural, and economic studies
- Manage research programs that are needed by different bodies of the state, civil society, and international organizations
- Implement programs and social policymaking at different levels
Evaluate and monitor social plans and programs on theoretical and practical levels
