Welcome Message

Welcome to the Department of Sociology, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.The Department believes that its niche lies in providing a learning environment in which students acquire (a) insights into competing economic theories, underlying values and methodology, (b) capacity for investigating basic and applied economic phenomena and problems, (c) generalized and specialized problem solving skills, (d) capacity to start and grow businesses, (e) capacity for public policy analysis and (f) capacity to offer economic advice to economic entities – individuals, households, businesses, governments and international organizations. The Department was established in 1967. It has since then, in its teaching and research activities, distinguished itself by its conscious policy of Africanization.
