Overview

Families, sexual orientation, ethnicity and other structures shape individuals, and individuals in turn shape those structures. Students gain a "sociological imagination", connecting personal stories with social structures and history. The Sociology program at Simon Fraser University in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences offers a major, a minor, and five joint majors. You can start this program at the Surrey campus.
