BA (Research) in Sociology
The Department focuses on the contemporary in conversation with established new and classical, theoretical, and pedagogical traditions. By emphasizing critical empiricism central to the fieldwork, archival, and ethnographic traditions of sociology and social anthropology, the curriculum explores intersections, ruptures, and continuities that form the essence of contemporary life.
Ms. Mamta Nagar,
The B.A. Sociology (Research) degree offers not only the requirements of taught courses but also offers an opportunity for undergraduate students to write/present a research thesis. The entire program, including the final year thesis, will train and prepare students not only for a career in sociology or social anthropology but also give them the requisite skills to enter the professional fields of development, media, journalism, writing, or any other field of work that they may choose to pursue. The Sociology degree combines its theoretical curriculum and practical hands-on training with field visits, workshop style of teaching, and student-driven classroom discussions. The pedagogy cultivates an undergraduate student to be a reflexive and grounded individual with a deep and critical understanding of the world and our position in it.
