We're social creatures. We live and die as members of — and contributors to — a society. As sociologists, we look at how societies are constituted in Canada and across cultures. As a student, you learn methods to systematically observe, investigate and analyze societies. You also think critically about social problems and social change.
Whether you study the self and identity or conduct large-scale research projects, our courses give you the opportunity to apply social science methods to nearly any situation: human rights, gender and sexuality, crime and justice, conflict and power, regional studies, even cyberspace.
While you study human behaviour, social interaction and organizational patterns, you also study the theory and process of social change, enhancing your thinking about the reasons for poverty, prejudice and other social problems.
Sociology’s many perspectives and methodological approaches will prepare you to make positive and effective social change in our society, or around the world.
A Bachelor of Arts degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.

The Co-op program gives you the chance to complete paid work terms over 12 to 16 weeks.

As an anthropologist, you study what it means to become a person in Canada and around the world. By systematically observing and investigating cultural life in diverse human societies, you’ll understand that much of what we assume to be natural is, in fact, constructed by our culture.
