Sociology / Sociologie


Sociology is the study of our social world — of our lives as individuals, how people connect, how societies are organized and how they change over time. What better way to study our global society than at a campus ranked by The Globe and Mail University Report (2012) as third in Canada for global focus? 

With our bilingual focus and our internships, exchanges and internationally oriented degrees, our graduates have the ability to apply sociological perspectives to topics such as gender, deviant behaviour and family, and to apply them to careers in public policy, law, communications, teaching, activism and more.

La sociologie étudie notre monde social, c’est-à-dire la vie des individus, les liens qui existent entre les gens, l’organisation des sociétés et les transformations qu’elles subissent avec le temps. Il n’y a pas de meilleur endroit pour étudier notre société mondiale que sur notre campus classé, par le Globe & Mail, numéro trois au Canada pour son orientation internationale.

Grâce à nos diplômes axés sur l’international, à nos stages, à nos échanges et à notre approche bilingue, nous formons des diplômés capables d’examiner, d’un point de vue sociologique, des sujets comme le genre, le comportement déviant, et la famille ; leurs compétences sont utiles dans des carrières en politiques publiques, droit, communications, enseignement, activisme et dans d’autres secteurs.
