This major provides graduates with advanced knowledge of sociology and equips them with professional social research skills that help people, organisations and communities to solve their problems through innovation and the competent management of services within organisations.
Sample areas of employment for our graduates include research positions in Universities, private research institutes and marketing research firms, media industries, government departments, non-government organisations, insurance companies and public relations firms.
To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the minimum entrance requirements.
For senior-year (Advanced Standing II) admission, applicants are normally expected to have completed an Associate Degree/Higher Diploma with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of ≥3.0 or an equivalent overall mark, or a credit award.
