Program Description:

Sociology majors learn a methodology to study people and the roles they adopt in society as individuals and in groups, through exploration of social relations, interactions and power dynamics, thereby gaining a comprehensive understanding of how human action and consciousness shape and are shaped by surrounding cultural and social structures. Among the vast range of topics that sociology explores, a few taught by faculty in our department are: race and racism, crime and social regulation, social policy, work and labour, gender, Canadian society, immigration, education, health and healthcare, social organizations, culture, poverty, social interaction, socialization and criminal justice systems.
