Welcome to the Department of Sociology

Ibn Haldun’s theoretical breadth and depth underlies the IHU Sociology Department’s approach to its own discipline, which is to engage critically with existing thought systems in order to build a new epistemological, ontological and methodological foundation for intellectual independence. At the same time, through its experienced academic staff the Department seeks to train students who have a critical approach and an interdisciplinary perspective; who are open to new ideas, concepts and methods; who make the most of a rich and complex historical heritage while also under- standing the spirit of the times.
