Learn about the processes and social relations that organize and influence individuals’ behaviour in a society and the dynamics of social change.
Sociology involves the empirical study of societies, institutions and cultures. During your studies, you will apply theoretical approaches to real-world cases and learn how to use quantitative and qualitative research tools (interviews, focus groups, discourse analysis and surveys), all heavily used in the current work environment. The connection between theory and research will enable you to develop a critical understanding of a range of current social issues, such as social justice and inequality, ethnic relations, deviance, individual and collective identity, gender relations, international development, social power, and science and technology.
