The Department of Sociology at the University of Malta is a centre for the advanced study and practice of sociology. The Department's activities revolve around scholarly research by its members, the teaching of undergraduate students, and the supervision of M.A. and Ph.D. research students. It also services a number of University Departments, Institutes, and Programmes through the provision of lecturing, tutoring, and supervision resources. Besides its full-time staff complement, all of whom hold doctoral qualifications from prestigious Universities, the Department makes regular use of the services of practitioners of sociology and related areas residing in the Maltese Islands. The Department also maintains a healthy exchange of student (through programmes such as Erasmus), teaching, and research resources with higher institutions of learning worldwide. Sociology resources at the University of Malta include the book collections in the University library, the various journals which the library subscribes to, and the collection of sociology films and documentaries at the Centre for Communication Technology (CCT). Students are encouraged to make use of these resources.
