Sociologists study how families work; how individuals change over the life course; how norms and laws are made, broken, enforced, and changed; how inequalities of gender, class, and race emerge, continue, and change; how cities, regions, nations, and international institutions work as organized sets of relationships; how power is exercised and resisted; how individuals, groups, and organizations communicate or fail to communicate; how cultural meanings relate to patterned social relationships; and more. Sociology thus creates theories about a broad range of human activity. Sociologists study these questions in two complementary ways. First, they gather data about large numbers of individuals to discover patterns of behaviour and interpret them through statistical analysis. Second, they gather in-depth data by interviewing and observing individuals and groups, and interpret these data through qualitative methods.

The Department offers Specialist, Major, and Minor programs in Sociology, and Specialist and Major programs in Criminology, Law and Society.

Students may select from a variety of special areas of interest in their Specialist or Major programs. They may also consult with the department for other combinations of courses such as those emphasizing Canadian society, interpersonal relations, or research methods.

A degree in Sociology leads to careers in social policy, government, education, health, public opinion research, community and social services, non-governmental, cooperative, business and non-profit organizations, criminology and corrections, industrial and labour relations, evaluation research, and environment.

Students should also review the Degree Requirements section prior to selecting courses
