The School of Liberal Studies (SLS) offers a range of interdisciplinary and overlapping programmes that support, encourage and redefine liberal arts education through cutting - edge interdisciplinary courses, interactive pedagogy and learning that goes beyond classroom spaces.
The Masters (MA) Programme in Sociology at AUD is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills that will make them engaged citizens of the world capable of critical thinking and reflexive action. The unique approach of the program is its focus on orienting students to the relationship between text and context, self and society, and the past and present. Over the course of their program, students develop a reflexive awareness of the historicity of the social and the ability to locate the history of the discipline within the sociology of knowledge production. The MA programme in Sociology envisages its students as compassionate, engaged researchers and active learners committed to principles of social justice. Graduates from our programme are thus taught to think across disciplines and to ask questions from multiple vantage points while maintaining a firm sociological 'grounding' when exploring specific research issues.
The Masters (MA) Programme in Sociology is a two- year (four semesters) program with a total of 64 credits. There are core compulsory courses as well as elective courses. Students have the facility of taking some elective courses from outside the discipline of Sociology.
Partial/Full fee waiver and scholarships are available. Full fee waiver of tuition fee will be extended to students belonging to SC/ST/PwD categories.
