Studying Sociology in Canada

Students studying sociology develop a sociological perspective about the world that provides an understanding of social behavior as well as the society and world we live in. Students seek to understand how groups and interactions influence human behavior; how cultural, historical, socio-political, and economic factors influence group interactions; social phenomena such as sexuality and gender, crime and deviance, ethnicity, family, and community; and socialization, religion, social movements, aging, and global stratification. Students focus on the ways that individuals relate to the larger society around them and how their position in that society can affect how they see the world and how they act.

Related areas of study include family studies, deviance and criminology, gender and women's studies, ethnic and cultural studies, and research methodology.

Students learn to use a wide range of research methods to gather information about people, groups, and social institutions. This includes anonymous surveys, interviews with members of a particular population, observational studies, polls, and focus groups. Students also learn to study historical documents such as birth and death records or personal documents such as letters.
