What is it about? Our sociology undergraduate program aims to nurture you to become a knowledgeable, critical and caring member of society. Our programme provides you with a solid intellectual foundation in sociology.

By taking courses that constitute the core areas of sociology, you will be equipped with skills to analyse key features of modern societies, such as urban life, culture, science and technology, economy, politics, marriage and family, and numerous other areas. Our wide-ranging course offerings also allow you scope to examine a number of specialist areas related to the discipline in a more concentrated manner, including media and culture, anthropology, and criminology.

You will be trained in classic and modern social theories, and equipped with both quantitative and qualitative research skills. These skills are highly sought after by many graduate employers and our graduates are currently working in many areas of business, government, social services, disciplinary services, NGOs, education, media and journalism, or pursuing further postgraduate study.Our sociology undergraduate program aims to nurture you to become a knowledgeable, critical and caring member of society.
