Introduction to Department

Sociology is a social science that systemizes and theorizes various phenomena, signs or experiences by comparing, analyzing and observing them. Especially, it aims to cultivate active ways of thinking to understand and solve social problems by learning about the characteristics and causes of regular and repetitive human thoughts and behavior types. It also aims to develop human resources equipped with balanced perspectives and historical awareness pertaining to social structure and change

Sociology has become systemic and fully fledged only recently but the scope is truly wide. Especially, it is closely related to psychology, anthropology and history and requires integrated and whole insights and perspectives.

Department of Sociology, College of Humanities, since its establishment in 1980, has provided education and research in typical sociological areas that correspond to the needs of contemporary society, such as classical sociological theories, contemporary sociological theories, theories of social problems, theories of social inequality, political sociology, sociology of religion, social statistics and social research methodologies.

In addition, subjects related to social welfare are being established as a way to explore practical sociology, promoting lectures in the areas of overview of social welfare studies, social policy theories, welfare state theories and senior welfare theories.

Graduates from Department of Sociology are employed by companies, journalistic sources and public research agencies. They also enter graduate schools to deepen their sociological knowledge.
