About The Sociology Department


The Department of Sociology at Barasat College was established in 1995. For the first few years, Sociology was introduced as a pass (general subject) but soon from Academic session 2004-2005, one could treat it as an Honours subject. From its inception, the department has focused on understanding the complexities of modern social life. Here, the Honours students always have the opportunity to learn or experience the practical paper which includes dissertation paper on diverse fields which cover arrange of issues of public concern like the problems of the weaker and backward section, gender and society, educational institutions, occupation and work, population dynamics, religion and different other cultural components. Their dissertation papers are based on research methodology. They experience data collection and analysis on a small scale and develop their level of critical and analytical thinking. A substantial portion of students after the completion of undergraduate course from this college join the Post-graduate courses in different universities. The students of Sociology can be successfully employed in educational institutions, public administration, research and planning,NGOs and other professional areas. Some of our alumni students are presently engaged in teaching and research.
