<Undergraduate Courses and Programs



As one of the liberal arts and social sciences, the discipline of sociology contributes to self-comprehension and the understanding of society by developing a body of knowledge concerning its structure, dynamics and symbolic orders. An undergraduate specialization in sociology provides a basis for graduate study and professional careers in fields such as university research and teaching in sociology, law, secondary school teaching, social research, administration and various social services. Though the members of the Department of Sociology teach a wide range of materials and perspectives on society in general and on Canadian society in particular, we take social criticism through theory development, research and teaching to be an essential element of our work.

Not all of the courses listed below will necessarily be offered in any given year. For details of courses to be offered, please consult the sociology supplemental calendar.

Note for Arts students: For all 4000-level sociology courses, students must have successfully completed at least 84 credits. However, pending availability of spaces, third-year Honours students who have successfully completed at least 78 credits who are also taking summer courses may be given permission to enrol.


Note: AK/SOSC 2410 6.00 Introduction to Communication Studies is acceptable as a major course in sociology at Atkinson.

Note: AK/SOSC 4740 6.00 Ideology, Social Policy and the State is acceptable as a major course in sociology at Atkinson.
