Dr. Fazal Hanan

Assistant Professor

It is my pleasure to inform you that the Department of Sociology is a significant seat of learning in the Faculty of Management and Social Sciences of the FATA University. It is hoped that this department will produce well groomed and well balanced individuals-traits that will be indispensable to successful sociologists. They will be rendering services in different settings of community organization and other developments. My dear students, being the students of a newly established university, you have many responsibilities in pursuing your education with enthusiasm and will try to bring good name to the university. My dear students, I appreciate you and advise you to always show your obedience and respect to your parents, teachers and elders because you can reach the heights of success and perfection only through their good wishes and prayers. Make best use of your time for eternal success in your lives and be true to yourself, your belief, your parents and Allah Almighty. The Department of Sociology is committed to promote social change, problem solving in human relationships, the empowerment and liberation of people to enhance well-being by utilizing theories, knowledge and skills for the social development of society.

The first ever Department of Sociology has been established along with the other departments of the Faculty of Management and Social Sciences in the FATA University. Initially it is offering BS (four year program) but in near future it will start MS / M.Phil and Ph.D programs. This department is committed to impart research and field work oriented education to the students by involving them in carrying out research in those areas which are sociologically significant. 
Sociology as a science and a full-fledged discipline has emerged not more than a century ago. It can be more simply articulated as a “Science of Society”, which aims at the exploration of the social dynamics. It demonstrates no negligence while studying each and every activity that falls in the domain of a society. Until recently the significance of Sociology has consistently been escalating and on a demand to be a focusing and highlighting discipline of the various intricate social problems and issues that have arisen out due to the onslaught of the broader modernization and Globalization processes.

The Department of Sociology will certainly have its due contributions in the progress and advancement of the FATA University by continuous encouraging rate of enrollments of students to its programs in future.
