DEPARTMENT OF Sociology

INTRODUCTION

Ever wonder why nationalism is such a powerful force in the modern world? Why terrorism is so prevalent today? Why politicians are mistrusted? Why Africa is so poor? Why genocide occurs? Why racism persists? How globalization is changing our lives? Whether societies could ever be more just? Then sociology is the subject for you. The Sociology Department has been established with a view to gain a unique identity because of its focus on contemporary social and cross-cultural issues along with solid training in statistics, theory, and the sub-fields of the disciplines. The department's cross-cultural focus and emphasis on social concerns help to prepare students for cross-cultural and domestic vocations in education, social service, teaching and social welfare missions. The students over here are concerned with understanding the human condition, past and present, and equipped with the skills of developing rapport in unfamiliar situations, collecting and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data, thinking analytically at the macro and micro levels, and communicating effectively, both orally and in writing. All of these skills are highly relevant to the multi-cultural and global world. Sociology students in the program are well-prepared for further academic study, and/or for pursuing careers in social services, criminal justice, education, research, health fields, social and corporate marketing, business consulting, policy analysis, program and projects evaluation, community participation and international development. In the present circumstances where the social fabric is hampered, the members of the society are highly disillusioned while the youth is completely disoriented; it is required that the various institutions must come up to contribute to the best of their capabilities/capacities. It is with this vision of reorienting the youth, strengthening their academic foundations and enhancing their research skills, that the Sociology Department is established in Lahore Leads University, one of the leading Private Sector University that caters to the needs of the people belonging to all the provinces and various social classes by offering BS and MS/MPhil in Sociology.
