MPhil Sociology

Program Introduction

Sociology is the investigation of human behavior in the social context. It studies the composition, organization, culture, norms and development of societies. It integrates knowledge from economics, political science, psychology, history, and art to understand human social existence from the scientific and humanistic perspective. Societies are living organisms, constantly experiencing and adapting to technologic, atmospheric, economic, demographic, and dogmatic changes, and sociologists are at the heart of this process of human evolution, making sense of the past and directing the future.

The School of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSS&H) at UMT offers a two-year MPhil Sociology degree program. It delivers academic rigor from an interdisciplinary perspective and an appreciation of market requirements. The program is designed to cater to professionals and students aspiring to build careers in the academia, government, and non-government sectors. The primary focus of the program is on research. The degree program offers three core courses in research methodology and data analysis. Additionally, the program offers majors in sociology of development and education.

Linking theoretical knowledge to its application in the field is a significant feature of MPhil Sociology. All courses includes a two-week seminar in which eminent professionals from the government and non-government sector are invited to deliver lectures and share their experiences from the field with participants. The seminar allows participants to gain from the knowledge and experience of field experts enhancing both their compatibility in the job market and capacity to navigate successful careers in their field of choice.
