About

Sociology at Acadia University is the fascinating study of human societies including social structures and rules, common beliefs and behaviours, social changes over time, the differences that exist between social groups, and society as a whole.

Overview

Sociology is one of the most popular programs in the Faculty of Arts at Acadia. We offer a variety of courses that cover a wide range of social issues including anthropology, criminology and deviance, cultural studies, education, issues in families, gender and feminism, health and health care, political economy, race and ethnic relations, research and methodology, social movements, social theory, societal development, and work. The sociology program involves careful inquiry into how societies work. It focuses on social problems and their solutions, and makes sense of the changing world using a variety of cross-cultural, historical and critical approaches.

Learning outcomes

Acadia University’s sociology department prides itself on having excellent student-teacher contact. With smaller classes, particularly at the senior levels, you are able to develop and express your own ideas. You will participate actively in the department - attending meetings and serving on key committees. We have a strong honours program, and a small-but-solid graduate program. Graduate and honours students often act as assistants in lower level courses and act, less formally, as mentors to undergraduates who are adjusting to university life. Your opinions and ideas are what make our classrooms and café discussions great. Get ready to commit sociology.
