Sociology is the study of social life; it focuses on the linkages between individual experience and the wider society in which we live.
Sociology at Laurier is characterized by strengths in the areas of equity and social justice. The aim of this program is to help you gain a better understanding of contemporary social issues by providing you with the theoretical, methodological and writing skills to analyze and engage with these issues. This prepares you for careers, further graduate studies and post-degree programs in fields such as social work, education, criminal justice and law.
A new feature in this program is the Applied Social Research Option, which can be added to your Sociology honours degree. The option provides Sociology majors and non-Sociology majors with an opportunity to develop advanced research methods and data analysis skills. This option provides you with training in advanced quantitative and qualitative methods and develops skills that you can take into social science related jobs.
