combines the rigour of a scientific discipline with a concern for social relevance. As a Sociology student, you will become more aware of how people relate to one another, and how a person's attitudes, actions and opportunities are shaped by social structures (groups, communities, organizations, etc), social categories (age, sex, class, race, etc) and social institutions (politics, religion, education, etc). This deeper understanding of people will lead you to an improved understanding of social issues and how they might be better addressed through enlightened and effective social policy.
This program allows students to specialize in Sociology while receiving a diverse liberal arts education. Students can choose to do a double major with another Arts discipline or choose a minor subject.
This program requires a higher level of academic performance and provides an opportunity for even greater specialization in Sociology than is provided by the regular BA program.
