Overview

The Sociology program offered by Mount Allison University helps students develop their perspective on society, examining it from different points of view and in different contexts. It facilitates understanding how and why society is organized as it is, and how it might be changed to create a more just, more equitable social world.

The discipline challenges students to think critically about the world around them and prepares them to participate in it.

First and second-year sociology courses provide an overview of the discipline and an introduction to sociological analysis. You will be introduced to the study of social problems through dynamic class interactions and assignments.

Third-year courses emphasize theoretical approaches, analytical methods, and their application to major areas of interest. This will help you build on your critical, analytical, and writing skills and teach theoretical approaches to sociology.

In your fourth year, students work with greater interdependence and in more depth on a range of sociological topics.
