Overview

Sociologists are interested in how humans form groups, whether for peace or war, cooperation or conflict, persuasion or domination, development or destruction. They investigate the structure of groups, organizations, and societies, and how people interact within these contexts.

Algoma University’s four-year sociology program provides critical skills for understanding and interpreting the social world. The program offers courses that address a wide variety of areas, such as contemporary media depictions of gender and the body, debates in the environmental movement, health policy analysis, critical assessments of law and social justice, and Canadian policy in relation to multiculturalism and Indigenous rights. Students will use a variety of research methods to gain a vital understanding of social movements, race and diversity, and gender and sexuality, including surveys, interviews, observational studies, polls, personal letters, and focus groups.

Small class size creates an environment for engagement, dialogue, and interrogation of social issues and problems. You will be encouraged throughout the program to investigate a research problem of your own. A Sociology degree provides you with an excellent foundation in critical thinking, research skills, and analyzing complex social dynamics.

Honours thesis course

The Research and Critical Analysis course is a key element to the sociology program. You will be guided by a thesis supervisor and are required to perform background research, analyze the collected research, and present and defend your findings at a public presentation.
