Faculty introduction

Nurturing the skills to understand our increasingly complex society and help shape its future

In order to survive and thrive, humans form groups, cooperate, create systems and rules, and ultimately build societies. As we all know, however, tensions and conflicts inevitably arise, even among family and friends. The majority sometimes discriminates against the minority. Competition and fights break out between individuals and groups. In the Faculty of Sociology & Social Work, students acquire the knowledge to understand society in all its complexity. By examining social realities in depth, they become able to identify problems and issues, pursue their root causes, and propose and implement solutions. This space of learning extends beyond the University’s walls to the broader world beyond. The Faculty invites prospective students to join us in further expanding that space by learning, thinking, and expressing our thoughts together.
