Our three disciplines (Sociology, Criminology and Anthropology) are dedicated to understanding and explaining the social world, how it affects people’s lives, and how a more just and humane world can be achieved. We attend to issues of social structure and social change, crime, law and justice, arrays of power inequalities and their consequences, sexuality and the family and cultural diversity. Our programmes in family, sexuality and sexual health are unique in Canada. Relevant programmes, accessible professors committed to your education, and a tight-knit, supportive student society facilitate a rich student-centred experience.

The University of Windsor’s Sociology, Anthropology and Criminology Department holistically integrates academic study, critical thinking skills, communications and presentation skills, research and organisational skills central to social analysis, theory and practical experience. We provide a foundation for professional and academic success.


Our department is equipped with professional and caring support staff, located on the first floor of Chrysler Hall South.
