|Description:||Brandon University’s Department of Sociology prepares you for active participation in the world around you by involving you in study, discovery, accumulation, and dissemination of knowledge about societal and community processes, issues, problems and needs. The Department offers a wide variety of courses that will help you develop the practical skills needed to critically assess and understand society. You will learn how and why human groups are as they are, and how sociologists conduct research, share their ideas with others and influence the communities in which we live. Sociology students have an opportunity to study areas such as criminology and deviance, social problems, family life, community development, gender relations, social psychology, the sociology of health and health care, and research methods.
4 year (Honours) major: This degree offers the same opportunities as the 4 year major but will distinguish the graduate in the job market as it is a more rigorous course of study. This is also the degree that is recommended for anyone who plans to go on to graduate studies in Sociology.
