Sociology

From the family unit to the global stage, how did we develop the societies we live in?

Students in this program are exposed to a variety of research methods and techniques.

They gain a firm foundation in both classical and contemporary social theories. Courses are offered in the following areas: social inequalities; the social construction of race, class, gender and sexuality; the sociology of childhood, youth and aging; sociology of the family; sociology of health; globalization and post-colonial theory; labour and trade union studies; sociology of the environment; Aboriginal studies; the sociology of education; and criminology.

Students can complete their studies online in the following: Concentration, Minor, and Certificate in Family Life Studies.

NOTE: The Criminology program, as well as the Equity, Diversity and Human Rights program are within the Sociology program umbrella.

By land area, Greater Sudbury is the largest city in Ontario and as such, the great outdoors beckon with its vast expanse of lakes and waterways, varied terrain, forests and comprehensive network of trails.

The sociology program aims:

  • to equip our students with the skills (critical thinking and research methods) they need to find meaningful work or pursue graduate studies upon graduating.

 

Program highlights:

  • three or four-year programs leading to a Bachelor of Arts;

  • also available: a multidisciplinary diploma or degree in Labour Studies (English only);

  • multidisciplinary knowledge;

  • critical thinking about contemporary issues from a sociological perspective;

  • knowledge of both qualitative and quantitative social research methods;
