the city have a spirit? Why do people living in the city feel alone? Is
our identity more than what is written on our ID cards? Why do we
always hear aboutpost modernism? Why are some things fashionable and
others not? What was life like before the internet and cell phones? How
can the conflicts in society be resolved? How do companies, the
government and NGOs work? How do culture and politics affect each other?
What makes people religious, nationalistic, liberal or conservative?
How do religions and ideologies shape our behaviors, values, and even
our economy? Why do civilizations rise and fall? If you are looking for
answers to these types of important questions the Sociology Department
will be right for you.
