Sociology - St. Xavier's College

Department of Sociology

Vision: Formation of socially pro-active citizens.

Mission: To create awareness on social issues; to develop interest in social concerns; to inculcate human values and sensitivity to social problems; and to mould wholesome personalities.

The subject of Sociology was introduced in the academic year 1990-1991. Each year there is a tremendous increase in the students joining the department. The strength of the department has increased to over 400 students.

This academic year the department has been very active. It has screened important films and documentaries such as – India Untouched, Oliver Twist, etc, relevant to the syllabus. On the occasion of Goa’s Opinion Poll inter class activities were organized for our students. Students participated in a debate, poster competition, poetry recitation and a speech competition.

The honors course in Sociology from the academic Year 2019-2020 has received a good response from the student community. We are confident the department will grow further.
