The first ever Department of Sociology has been established along with the other departments of the Faculty of Management and Social Sciences in the FATA University. Initially it is offering BS (four year program) but in near future it will start MS / M.Phil and Ph.D programs. This department is committed to impart research and field work oriented education to the students by involving them in carrying out research in those areas which are sociologically significant.
Sociology as a science and a full-fledged discipline has emerged not more than a century ago. It can be more simply articulated as a “Science of Society”, which aims at the exploration of the social dynamics.
