Education in sociology will open doors for a variety of career opportunities ranging from public administration to politics to the development sector. The sociology course offered at Thames will help students understand the wider world through interdisciplinary learning, such as courses in research, statistics, politics, as well as anthropology. Critical understanding of social problems, understanding of ethical questions in the contemporary world, and critical perspectives and skills to engage in the development of rural societies are the major points to draw from the BSO program at Thames. Thames also encourages students to work in teams and share ideas to lead innovation in the workplace.
