Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Sociology
Description:First year students take our leading edge blended learning course in Introductory Sociology. This course introduces students to the core ideas and themes in Sociology, using a variety of teaching and learning methods that combine the latest technologies with dynamic lectures and small group tutorials. Students learn the basics of Sociology, but we also train them in university level writing, argumentation and research skills.

After taking Introductory Sociology in their first year, students take core training courses in theory and methods in their second year, alongside a wide array of optional courses. In their third and fourth years, students choose increasingly specialized option courses. Third year students have many opportunities to study Sociology abroad through the International Programs Office. Fourth year courses are seminars with a maximum of 25 students, enabling an excellent faculty to student ratio. Fourth year students may also opt to work with a professor on a thesis project over two terms on a specialized topic.
