Sociology Undergraduate Program

What is Sociology?                               

       “Sociology is the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behaviour.  Sociologists investigate the structure of groups, organizations, and societies and how people interact within these contexts.  Since all human behaviour is social, the subject matter of sociology ranges from the intimate family to the hostile mob; from organized crime to religious traditions; from the divisions of race, gender and social class, to the shared beliefs of a common culture” (American Sociological Association (2009: p. 5).

You will discover that there are few topics that our courses do not explore. You can learn about criminology, social inequality, health, deviance, work, identity, and demography. Studying Sociology helps you to understand yourself and your social world better.
