Details

Sociology is the study of society and culture. Using diverse methods, practices and theories, it helps us understand social life. Sociology is fundamental to the social sciences because the quality of life of every human on the planet is directly or indirectly influenced by their relative position within, and responses to, society. The Bachelor of Arts with a major in Sociology provides you with a thorough training in the methods, theories and select leading areas of contemporary sociology.

In the Sociology major, you will have opportunities to study particular themes from a sociological perspective, including inequalities, deviance, identities, gender, religion, medicine and health care, ethnicity and migration, and the family, among other possibilities. A Bachelor of Arts with a major in Sociology will prepare you for both employment and a research higher degree.
