School:Nipissing University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts and Science
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Sociology
Description:The Sociology program examines how social structures and institutions such as class, family, community, and power influence society. Classical and contemporary social theories are investigated and problems such as how crime and abuse affect society are explored. Students gain a thorough understanding of research methods and techniques, hone their ability to design experiments and studies, and become adept at analyzing statistical data. The opportunity to choose courses and simultaneously complete the Certificate in Health Studies and Gerontology while earning a Sociology degree is available. If desired, choosing to undertake honours thesis research will provide a distinct advantage upon graduation, especially when pursuing graduate studies.

Focusing on understanding society, social behavior and the structure of human groups, sociology involves the systematic study of interactions between people and important social institutions. Nipissing's sociology students explore the sociological influences of various topics such as the family, workplace, education, medicine, demographics, and the criminal justice system.
