Message from the Head of Department

(Prof. Yuet-wah Cheung)

Sociology is an interesting discipline that examines how the structures and processes of groups, organizations and societies influence the values and behviours of individuals and their social interaction. It investigates a range of social institutions, including the family, school, workplace, religion, government, and economy, using sociological concepts and theories to analyze social phenomena pertaining to social institutions and social life in the context of social change. Findings of sociological research oftentimes have social impact and policy implications.
