Overview

The course is designed to introduce the students to the world of sociological concepts.  It is very important to understand the social system holistically with all its different subsystems. Especially in the synthetic cultural milieu the younger generation is losing its attachments to basic social events and fail to comprehend the meanings of the various social concepts and their original characteristic features.  For instance, the constantly changing social systems have to be understood with sociological knowledge.  Under such conditions knowledge of sociology as a scientific subject has become inevitable to the modern society.  The study of principles of sociology will create a new generation with right knowledge of society and other social phenomena.  This course is organized in such a way that all the fundamental concepts of sociology are defined and illustrations are provided.  In order to make the lessons complete quiz, assignments and question are also furnished to the students and they are expected to enhance their knowledge by learning.
