Program overview

The MA in Sociology allows you to gain advanced training in a wide variety of sociological methods and theories. Our courses and materials explore the traditional foundations of sociology while also offering opportunities to consider new and emerging areas of social inquiry. You will conduct studies that address contemporary social problems and examine various cultural practices that impact individuals on personal, local and global levels. Our faculty members have connections to multiple research centres, such as the Centre for the Interdisciplinary Study of Culture and Society, the Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism Studies, the Centre for Technoculture and Games (TAG), and the newly launched Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture and Technology. Well-known for encouraging students to participate in local, national and international research projects, our faculty also includes Quebec's first-ever Research Chair on Gambling.
