Our disciplines -- Sociology, Anthropology, Criminology, and Family and Social Relations -- 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 programs in family, sexuality, and sexual health are unique in Canada. Relevant programs, accessible professors committed to your education, and a tight-knit, supportive student society facilitate a rich, student-centred experience.

Our Department holistically integrates academic study, critical thinking skills, communications and presentation skills, research and organizational skills central to social analysis, theory, and practical experience. We provide a foundation for professional and academic success.
