Wednesday, October 31, 2018 – Department of Sociology welcomed guests from Lampung University. There were 80 students from the Lampung University who visited to carry out a campus comparative study tour on urban sociology.
In the Department of Sociology itself, the Urban Sociology course is one of the leading courses because in addition to being representative of Airlangga University’s location in the middle of the city, the study on urban areas is important in order to look at the social changes that occur in urban communities.
During the event, Drs. Sudarso, M.Si, as the lecturer in urban sociology, told the students that the city of Surabaya is very unique. This city is where traditional and modern culture meet. Even though Surabaya is an urban area, the people still hold traditional values.
Dr. Sutinah, MS as the Head of FISIP UNAIR’s Department of Sociology also explained to the participants that in UNAIR’s Sociology, the urban sociology course applies a field learning system, even in almost every semester from semester 1 to 7, students continue to conduct field studies in both urban sociology and other field studies.
In addition to camaraderie, this visit also hoped to add Lampung University’s students insight on urban sociology.│RAP│
