Our disciplines are dedicated to understanding and explaining why the social world is the way it is, how the social world affects people’s lives, and how a more just and humane world can be made. We attend to issues of social structure and social change, the causes and consequences of inequality, justice, crime, law, and cultural diversity. The Department engages in award winning, leading-edge research and teaching, community outreach,  and contributes to contemporary social policy. We offer Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral degree programmes, including programmes of study in family and sexuality, unique in Canada.
