Develop the strong critical thinking skills and extensive research abilities needed to be a changemaker — you’ll graduate prepared to challenge our understanding of how societies form, divide, move and change. You’ll uncover the role sociology plays in society and social change through our flexible curriculum of interdisciplinary courses, which emphasize hands-on research projects and give you both a range of practical skills and a deep understanding of social issues.
Our specialist program is designed to give you the practical preparation and robust background for a variety of professions and graduate programs. Woven throughout your studies are opportunities to design and carry out independent sociological research — in your third year, you'll choose a quantitative or qualitative research practicum (or both) then get even more hands-on experience conducting cutting-edge research in a capstone seminar.
Our major program gives you a comprehensive education in the theories, methods and core areas of sociology. You'll get hands-on with key paradigms and research methods and develop a firm understanding of sociological ways of knowing.
