DescriptionAre you fascinated by the social behaviour of people? Consider a Sociology major!

Students in the VIU Sociology study program explore a breadth of issues and events from the past, present and future that shape society. Sociology covers every aspect of human existence, making the skills learned and understanding gained from this area of study carry over into almost any future career.

With an in-depth awareness of the inner workings of social behaviour from a macro level, Bachelor of Sociology students graduate with the tools to help make the world a better place with careers in social work, government, counselling, community affairs and international aid.
