Abstract:Formal training in sociology and social anthropology in Ethiopia has a relatively long history, having commenced in 1951 under the auspices of Addis Ababa University (AAU). Following a brief overview of the development of sociological and anthropological training in Ethiopia over the last 55 years, this paper examines the current programmes and activities of the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology (SOSA). It covers the undergraduate programmes (BA in sociology and social anthropology, and minor in sociology); BA senior essay research; MA programme in social anthropology; MA thesis research; MA programme in sociology; research by department staff; departmental publications; staff development and staff situation; extra-departmental activities; and contributions to civil society organizations. Started with modest aims and means, the teaching of sociology and anthropology in Ethiopia now finds itself in better circumstances, although there are developments that are sources of concern.
