Degree:Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study:Sociology
Description:

Sociologists ask questions such as: Are any behaviours deemed immoral in every society? What role does alcohol consumption play in soccer hooliganism? Why is HIV/AIDS described as being a disease of poverty?



Sociologists study how social structures, social processes, and cultural products constrain and enable human behaviour. Societies are products of the actions and interactions of individuals, and sociologists use empirical research to explore every level of social life. During the course of your studies, you'll gain statistical analysis skills, research capabilities, written and verbal communication skills, and a deeper understanding of the complex nature of society.
