Overview

Bachelor of Arts in Sociology

Sociology helps us to see patterns of social relationships. 

Sociological insights help explain how social institutions such as the family, the workplace, and the economy all shape wider social life and how we influence and even change the society around us. 

Sociologists observe behaviour to understand significant social forces. 

Students in the Sociology program will examine issues that range from individual matters such as gender, identity and aging to social issues like social inequality, consumer culture and the social determinants of health. 

Studying these topics will help students develop keen observation and analytical skills that will enhance their understanding of the impact of social structures on individual life chances.

Nipissing's teaching approach provides a solid classical and contemporary theoretical background while developing applied research skills. 

That means that students will gain theoretical knowledge while offering hands-on research opportunities and experiential learning. 

The university's emphasis on data collection, research and analysis will prepare students to do research in real-world situations. 

In the qualitative and quantitative research courses, students will learn valuable job-related skills like:

Conducting interviews, focus groups and survey research, and using specialised data analysis software like Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS).
