At NTU Sociology, we focus on training students in core
skills and competencies that are important in every workplace. These include
pitching novel perspectives and ideas, knowing how to take initiative, and
adapting to fast-changing conditions. We train our students to think
dynamically, to not only look for answers in the usual places but to also know
how to ask new questions. We provide opportunities to craft questions and
arguments—both in writing and speech—and to work collaboratively in teams. We
also provide research training in both qualitative
and quantitative methods.
In today’s workplace, most people will have many different
jobs in their careers. The ability to acquire new skills is crucial. We believe
the culture at NTU fosters this, helping students to evaluate things
critically, and cultivate an openness to challenging themselves in areas they
find unfamiliar or even uncomfortable.
An NTU Honours degree in Sociology also enables you to
pursue graduate-level studies in the social sciences or other relevant fields
such as business, law, and government. Entry requirements for such programmes
are established by the respective universities.
NTU offers career development support through the Career
& Attachment Office (CAO), which provides services such as career coaching.
We encourage our students to use the university’s resources to prepare for
transitioning from their educational to their career journeys.
