The Department of Sociology provides opportunities for students to understand the conceptual and methodological tools used by sociologists to understand society.
Students will be encouraged to:
  • see society as concrete day-to-day behavior of human beings;
  • grasp the relationship between history, society and the individual's life;
  • realize that social patterns are tools for the accomplishment of human ends and not necessarily unalterable facts of life; and
  • develop the ability to critically analyze social phenomena.
