     I welcome the students of Department of Sociology to take this subject as main course. As a student of Anthropology myself, i have studied sociology and found it quite fascinating because it not only makes you understand the theories of social systems but gets you acquainted with the social processes too, and addresses the issues related to social development, systematically. While studying Sociology we work closely with every aspect of the society and people.
