O que eu aprenderei?

How are new technologies changing the ways we interact with each other and live our lives? Why are many jobs becoming increasingly short term and how are this situation affecting people’s families, communities, and self-identities? Why do social problems like poverty, racism, sexism, homophobia, and ageism persist in the modern world? What can we do to address these problems? What is it like to live with discrimination when many of the doors to social participation are closed to you? How do we define what is ‘normal’ and what happens to those who don’t fit within these definitions? Sociology asks these and other questions in order to understand the powerful forces that shape the world and societies in which we live today. It is also the study of our personal and lived experiences of those worlds and societies, and how our self-identities, future opportunities and ways of life are shaped accordingly. If you are interested in these kinds of questions, sociology is a good fit for you.

This is a 15 credit program requiring at least 6 credits in Sociology including 1 credit of first year courses, 1 credit of theory, and 1 credit of research methods. In consultation with faculty advisors, you are free to tailor your program to suit your interests and career goals.
