What is it about? This programme seeks to nurture students to become knowledgeable, critical and caring members of society. The programme offers students a solid intellectual foundation in Sociology. Its wide ranging course offerings also allow students to examine in a more concentrated manner a number of specialist areas related to the discipline, including media and culture, anthropology, and criminology. As a whole, the programme aims to:
• provide students with knowledge in the conduct of social life;
• enhance students’ critical understanding of the social world by exposing them to historical and cross-cultural analyses of the subject; and
• encourage students to appreciate and care for the continuing efforts to improve social life in the globalized world of today.
