Description:The Department of Sociology is a core undergraduate program in the Faculty of Arts and Science at Trent. Our curriculum provides a critical introduction to the theoretical approaches, research methods and substantive areas developed by sociologists to explain the social processes that structure our everyday worlds.

In particular, students are encouraged to explore the diverse cultures, dynamics of power, social experiences, complexities of social inequality and global social changes that forge relations between individuals, groups and institutions. The Department’s faculty members are committed teachers and active researchers, including three distinguished research and teaching award winners. Their expertise in gender, work, social justice, media, religion, culture, sport, organizations, sexuality, ethnicity, family, health and other fields challenges students to discover their own sociological imagination as they aspire to graduate studies, international opportunities, or careers in teaching, research, business, social work, law, policy, government and the social service professions. Our courses emphasize written and oral presentation skills, close intellectual contact with faculty, and what sociologist Georg Simmel called ‘the adequately trained eye’ to envision how ‘the total meaning of the world as a whole radiates from every single point.’
