About NUS Sociology Society
To promote camaraderie amongst Sociology majors and students interested in Sociology across diverse backgrounds by enhancing the appreciation of Sociological imagination in our everyday life.
To nurture students’ capacity to question assumptions, discover new perspectives and redefine existing paradigms of our social world through collaboration and building connections.
Formed in 1967 by a group of enthusiastic and idealistic freshmen, the NUS Sociology Society has been involved in the student life of the Department of Sociology. With an appreciation for the larger forces that shape society, the NUS Sociology Society has constantly sought to stay relevant to these shifting contexts.
While this has shaped the Society’s nature towards one which is ever changing and multi-faceted, the underlying desire to stay academically relevant and to pursue sociologically inspired causes have remained unchanged, if not strengthened.
More so, we believe that Sociology does not study the world as it is, rather, it studies the world as it is not. It is by striving towards this world that is not, that will make our world a better place. Perhaps we are still as idealistic as ever! Nevertheless, we welcome you to discover (and hopefully take part in) our various events, where we experiment with ideas and attempt to translate sociological thoughts into actions.
