Program Information

School:Acadia University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Sociology
Description:Sociology is a field of study that involves careful inquiry into the activities of individuals and groups within human societies. The discipline seeks to gain a reasoned understanding of the patterned relationships that make up societies. Most courses emphasize the analysis of our Canadian context and the use of Canadian resources. The department's concern is with the kind of educational experience which will enable continued analysis and understanding of social phenomena beyond the immediacy of the university experience.

The Honours Sociology programme allows students to specialize in sociology and provides more thorough preparation for further study in sociology. The programme entails requirements which are additional to those required to major in sociology and, in particular, the writing of an Honours Thesis.
