Program Information

School:Algoma University
Field of Study:Sociology
Description:Sociology is the disciplined effort to understand society, social and cultural relations, the working of institutions, and the patterns of behaviour that characterize all social life. Sociologists are interested in how humans form groups, whether for peace or war, co-operation or conflict, persuasion or domination, development or destruction. The Sociologist's "laboratories" are work settings, health care institutions, social service agencies and other organizations. The particular nature of sociological study emphasizes the need to understand the structural influences on such things as health and illness, educational achievement, occupation and social problems such as deviance and crime.

Sociology provides students with the tools to make sense of many social experiences, interpersonal relations, organizations and institutions and social movements.
