Bachelor of Arts (BA) - Sociology
The BA in Sociology at Alliance School of Liberal Arts is an expression of the inseparable and organic interconnections of theory and practice to comprehend and engage with society. It will use the traditional sociological degree programme as a palimpsest and add to the vibrant and thriving dimension of contemporary social issues and ethnographic research and writing.
Dissolving the age-old distinction between the 'book view' and 'field view' in the discipline of sociology, the programme will enable the students to learn closely from the field, the emerging, engaging, and sedimenting social worlds around them. Aware of and attuned, with the contemporaneous social concerns of India and South Asia, the course curriculum will facilitate experiential learning, aimed at developing a holistic sense of society, culture, and politics, as well as understanding their interdependence and inter-evolution.
Our graduates, with a 360-degree exposure to the social world, will be geared to effectively influence policy and planning for social and economic development at multiple levels. The programme would enhance the employability of its graduates by equipping them to perform in versatile and interdisciplinary research domains ranging from civil society organizations, international social and philanthropic initiatives, public sector organizations, as well as independent business houses, in addition to providing them with core knowledge of the discipline for further academic pursuits and explorations.
