Undergraduate Program

Educational Goals    

  We here at the department of sociology strive to give our students an understanding of contemporary societies and diverse exposure to important local and global issues with sociological imagination. In order to give our students a firm understanding of the field, we aim to provide a teaching and learning environment in which students are encouraged to think critically and independently. The diversified courses are designed and structured in such a way to foster these key competencies and skills.

 

Undergraduate Program

     A. 
Bachelor’s Program

  The undergraduate program aims to cultivate fundamental sociological knowledge, rational and critical thinking, concern for humanity and society and sound development of student character. To achieve these goals, undergraduate courses seek to enhance students’ ability in social research. Students have to learn how to collect and organize empirical data step-by-step, and analyze issues critically. Our courses help students use information technology and statistical knowledge, and develop reading and writing proficiency in Chinese and English. We also emphasize leadership and teamwork. These abilities are not only the goals of our department, but also basic necessities in any career path. We encourage students to take courses in other fields and develop interdisciplinary specialties.     

 

B. Coursework

  The required undergraduate courses are grouped around two main concerns: “Understanding of Modern Sociological Theories” and “Understanding of Empirical Analysis.” The selective courses are grouped into the following areas to serve as the basis to enhance professional sociological training and to develop multi-disciplinary specialties:

 (1) Population, Family and Social Stratification

 (2) Globalization and Social Innovation
