About the department

Our department has been endowed with the Nels Anderson Prize and the Nels Anderson Research Fund, recognizing excellence in study and research among undergraduate and graduate students;

Many of our faculty are involved in collaborative research initiatives across disciplines, across the country and internationally;

Within the last six years, members of our department have brought in over $3 million dollars of research funds, authored or edited 16 books, published dozens of articles in refereed journals, travelled to over 25 countries worldwide discussing the results of their research and offered hundreds of workshops to professionals in many different walks of life.

Undergraduate programs

Undergraduate study with honours, major, or minor in sociology balances theory with hands-on experience using qualitative and quantitative methodologies.

A degree in sociology can help prepare you for so many career paths as it helps build valuable and transferable skills such as the ability to think critically, analyze and problem solve.

Graduate programs

Our graduate programs are research-intensive, emphasizing social theory, critical thinking, fieldwork, professional writing and high-level analysis. Many of our master’s and doctoral students work with faculty members on their funded research programs.

Our graduates go on to work in academia, public policy, management, social services, social research, law, among other areas.
