Seeking to change the world, or a little slice of it? Sociology is the study of our social world – the dynamics of group life and people’s interactions with one another. It teaches critical thinking and research skills to empower you to help improve society.

Overview

Our program makes students aware of themselves and the world around them — including families, workplaces, gender, race, sexuality, health care, sports, religion, organizations — an invaluable asset for any career you may pursue, from business, law, education or public health, to criminology, counseling or journalism. We also offer a five-year accelerated Bachelor of Arts in Sociology/Master of Public Administration degree.

The programme

Our program teaches you to analyze social life in a critical, intellectually rigorous way. You’ll learn the rich tradition of sociology and apply it to today’s problems and issues. In addition to mastering sociology theories and research methods, our students choose from electives focused on race and ethnicity, media, occupations, education, deviance and law, gender and sexuality, illness and wellness, population and ecology, city life, social inequality and countless other aspects of group life. Our students also have the option of completing a 100-hour internship experience.
