Sociology is the study of society, patterns of social relationships, social interaction and social institutions. Sociology is concerned with the human being and his/her environment, and with the interactions between people. Sociology touches a person's entire life and can supply every person with guidelines to plan a new dynamic future together with other people.

Why study Sociology?

Sociology places great value on advanced knowledge and skills. It offers training that will equip you to make a significant contribution in a fast-changing world, especially in South Africa. Through this training, you will acquire new expertise, analytical abilities and research skills, and you will be allowed to practise these. These abilities are sought after in the labour market, but also allow you to function independently in the labour sector.
