MS Sociology

Master in Science of Sociology is a two-year academic program after BS or MA in sociology. According to the famous Greek philosopher Aristotle, man is by nature a social animal and cannot live alone. When people live together and make societies, they interact with each other for their needs and desires. These interactions bring forth social behaviors, relationships, and culture. To study the nature of these social interactions and the issues associated with them is the job of sociologists. Sociologists conduct research, gather data, and then analyze it with modern technical tools so that different institutions of the society could utilize the outcome of the study to make things better and eradicate the things that are tarnishing the social structure. MS in Sociology provides an opportunity to those willing to maintain the social system and bring a change for the better.
