Overview

Bachelor of Arts - Sociology

Sociology explores how someone’s background—class, gender, ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation, nationality—affects their experiences and shapes their behavior. 

It studies how societies work, how social institutions operate, and how various elements of society influence the human experience.  

The Sociology department at St. Thomas University is rooted in social justice and focuses on using knowledge to address social inequality and make a change. 

This is accomplished through diverse course offerings that include themes like racism, queer sociology, sociology of sport, sociology of health, and animals and society.

What sets STU’s Sociology Program Apart?

  • Small, engaging classes that emphasize personal interaction, discussion, and debate.   
  • Professors practice what they teach as active community activists. They are engaged in initiatives that tackle issues like food sovereignty, housing access, gender, and sexual minority rights, and immigrant justice. 
  • Lectures and seminars are always taught by professors—not teaching assistants—which means students learn from experts in the field.  
  • Professors are leading researchers and often invite students to work with them as research assistants. This is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students and provides valuable hands-on experience.  
  • Students benefit from faculty expertise in gender, race, national identity, health inequalities, social determinants of health, geographies of inequality, residential and lifestyle migration, and urban and household forms.
