The curriculum in the four-year direct honours NTU Sociology programme emphasises critical thinking, theoretical reasoning, empirical research, and communication skills. Students develop the ability to think through complex issues, investigate them empirically, and go beyond conventional wisdom – abilities essential to organisations and vocations today.
| About Us
Our students have access to a wide range of core courses and electives. At NTU Sociology, they work with professors from diverse backgrounds who pursue research in a wide range of areas. Students also form vibrant student communities within the discipline, in the School of Social Sciences, as well as across disciplinary boundaries in the university at large.
At NTU, our Sociology majors will also have the opportunity to pursue a Second Major programme. Qualified students may take a second major in another discipline offered within the School of Social Sciences (Economics, Psychology and Public Policy and Global Affairs) or the School of Humanities (Chinese, English, History, Linguistics & Multilingual Studies, and Philosophy); or a second major in Communication Studies offered by the School of Communications and Information.
