Program Information

School:Douglas College
Degree:Not Applicable; University Transfer
Field of Study:Sociology
Description:Sociology is the study of social organization in modern society. It studies the profound changes in social life brought on by industrialization: urbanization, the market system, public health and education, technology and popular democracy. Sociology also studies the change of our social institutions and values as a result of industrialization and how this change affects the role of women, family life, ethnic relations, the media, sports and entertainment.

There are no College credentials which have a core content of Sociology. You must take some of these courses to complete an Associate in Arts (Environmental Studies) and the Criminology Diploma or the Criminal Justice Certificate. Most students who take an Associate of Arts take some of these courses, although this can be avoided. Students in a range of other programs, from Nursing to Business Administration to Music find it useful to take an elective from this area.
