Abstract

This study aims to conduct a comprehensive content analysis of the BS Sociology HEC Pakistan curriculum, focusing on its alignment with the principles of Sustainable Development. The goal of the study is to determine how well the existing curriculum of the BS Sociology four-year program trains students for active engagement in sustainable development projects and how well it addresses important social development topics. A total of 22 courses of the BS Sociology curriculum were analysed. Using content analysis techniques, the study examined how inclusive, relevant, and successful the curriculum is in encouraging pupils to take on social responsibility. This research provides a view of curriculum reforms and enhances Education for Sustainable Development in Pakistan. The checklist method was used to examine the social development curriculum, highlighting the areas that still need improvement. This study aims to elaborate on the extent to which the BS sociology curriculum has adopted these characteristics of sustainable development for the bachelor of sociology degree. The analysis suggests that more fields related to sustainable development can be included to enrich the concept of sustainability.
