  • FOREWORD
    It is my greatest pleasure to recount the historical development and modest progress of the Department of Sociology. This is intended to acquaint the students, staff and the University community of our advances made so far over the few years of our existence.
    The Department of Sociology of the Federal University Dutsin-ma was one of the foundation departments established by the University in the year 2012. Teaching commenced in July 2012 with five (5) academic staff made of two senior lecturers; one lecturer 1 and two Assistant lecturers, with a student population of twenty one (21) students. By the second session (2012/2013), student population rose to 63 and increased in the third session (2013/2014) to 96.
    Currently, the Department has a student population of 146 as follows: 400 level, 20; 300 level, 40; 200 level, 30; and 100 level, 56. As a policy, the Department insists on academic excellence, hence the few who could not measure up to the standard have fallen by the way. The academic staff strength of the Department has equally improved. Currently, the Department has academic staff strength of 12 lecturers as follows: one Professor, one Reader, three Senior Lecturers, one Lecturer 1, one Lecturer 11, four Assistant Lecturers, and one Graduate Assistant. The Department equally has two supporting staff with various skills in their area of specialty.
    The Department is fully developing with an attempt to run most of the courses prescribed by the National University Commission (NUC) in the minimum standards for Nigerian University. Already, 33 courses in different rubrics of academic pursuits have been mounted. These courses include: Theory, statistics, criminology, political sociology, development, gender studies, rural development, urban studies, demography, industrial relations, and religion and family studies.
    Given the curiosity of the students to acquire knowledge, and the zeal, commitment and dedication of staff to their duties, we hope that this Department will, in the near future, be one of the leading Departments of sociology in the country.

    PHILOSOPHY
    The philosophy of the programme is to produce well grounded students/graduates who possess a thorough comprehension of the dynamics of human societies and cultures, and are equipped with a broad foundation of knowledge. This will enable them to competently make positive contributions to the development of the community, society and humanitythrough the dissemination of theoretical and empirical knowledge of the discipline of Sociology. All these are to be anchored on the strategic position of Nigeria in Africa/World and in the context of an ICT driven 21th century.
    The curriculum is uniquely designed to combine scholarship with relevance, scientific objectivity with commitment in providing students with holistic knowledge in the principles, theories, and methods of Sociology.
    VISION
    MISSION

    OBJECTIVE(S)
    Sociology is a broad field unified by its theoretical attention to history, culture and social structure and their effects on human behavior. The overall objective of the programme therefore, is for students to acquire the necessary sociological perspectives, concepts and skills that will enable them generally develop a global outlook, and specifically comprehend the evolution and transformation of the Nigeria state, economy and society. Thus, the programme aims at:
    i. Training sociologists with a thorough grasp of the major sociological theories, models, concepts and skills as well as critical minds necessary for defining and providing solutions to societal problems.
    ii. Providing an intellectual environment that enables the students realize their value and potential, raise their level of creativity, and promote the spirit of discipline and self-reliance.
    iii. To create a desirable milieu for positive behavioral changes which will enable students develop values like hard work, probity, discipline, creativity and self-reliance, dedication and patriotism essential to fulfill Nigeria’s National development objectives.
    iv. Producing graduates whose concrete knowledge of the Nigerian state, economy and society enables them make their contribution to community and national development in the fields of industry, analysis, research, teaching, planning, counseling, social welfare, culture, diplomacy, communications, public relations, self-employment, etc.
    v. With the background above, graduates of sociology should be able to fit into various fields of human endeavor in both public and private sector of the Nigerian economy. In particular, the progrmme are such that the end products would serve as Academics, Administrative Personnel Officers, Policy Analysts, Information Officers, Police, Custom officers, Immigration Officers, Intelligent and Military Personals, Journalists, and Social Welfare Officers among others.
