Masters in Sociology

Sociology is a study field which deals with human social behavior. It can be also defined as the study of the origins, organization, institutions, and development of human society. Sociology is a part of social science and aims to acquire knowledge about human social factors by performing empirical and critical analysis through qualitative and quantitative techniques, interpretative, hermeneutic and philosophic approaches. The study field looks into the factors such as deviance, social stratification, social class, culture, social mobility, law and religion and develops scientific knowledge. Sociologists try to understand the issues that change the society. Graduates usually follow one of these paths: criminal justice, human services, education, research, policy or business. Students will develop their communication, analytical and research skills as well as understanding of various human aspects.
