The department undertakes various studies to help improve the lives of people, groups, and societies as part of its social responsibilities. The sociology program focuses on the study of human society with focus on social life, social change including development, and the social causes and consequences of human behaviour. A core feature of this program is teaching a broad variety of both qualitative and quantitative methods of empirical social research. Equipped with these research skills, students of sociology are provided with a range of distinctive perspectives on society to generate new ideas on social structures. Sociology therefore offers a real-world account to practically all aspect of social life ranging from crime and criminal behavior, social movements and their impact on society, political class and party systems, interpersonal attraction and how people express emotions, design and delivery of welfare services to issues relating to peace and war.
