Overview

Study the social behaviour or society, including its origins, development, organization, networks, and institutions.

The program in Sociology offers students a solid foundation in qualitative and quantitative research methods and gives them opportunities to conduct empirical research. Students also learn classical and contemporary social theories. They may choose courses in social inequality; sexuality and disability; youth, aging and the family; Indigenous peoples; cultural marginality; globalization; immigration; mass media; social movements; health and environmental issues; memory and life stories; and crime and the criminal justice system.

Students learn to question their assumptions about society and to take responsibility for making the world a better place. They may choose to complete a placement with a community organization. They also have the option of obtaining a Certificate in Social Research Methods.

The sociology program aims:

  • to enable our students to question their taken-for-granted assumptions about how the social world operates;
  • to provide our students with a strong background in a wide range of research techniques;
  • to encourage our students to consider what responsibility and opportunities they may have to make the world a better place for themselves and others;
  • to equip our students with the skills (critical thinking and research methods) they need to find meaningful work or pursue graduate studies upon graduating.

Program highlights:

  • three or four-year programs leading to a Bachelor of Arts;
  • also available: a multidisciplinary diploma or degree in Labour Studies (English only);
  • multidisciplinary knowledge;
  • critical thinking about contemporary issues from a sociological perspective;
  • knowledge of both qualitative and quantitative social research methods;
  • strong communication skills (written and spoken);
  • identification of social injustices and strategies for addressing them;
  • appreciation of diversity;
  • ethical standards.
