The Department of Psychology, Sociology, and Anthropology offers a major, concentration, and minor in Sociology.

Sociology is the study of human social interaction and includes a focus on structure, culture, interaction, stratification, institutions, and social change. Students with sociology backgrounds do well in areas such as human services, government, research, education, and other fields that require a good understanding of society and culture.

Students may also choose to complete the Human Services program, a stream of study embedded within the Sociology major.

The Human Services program meets the requirements for membership with the Council for Standards in Human Service Education (

Note: This program is offered under the written consent of the Minister of Advanced Education effective March 5, 2008, having undergone a quality assessment process and been found to meet the criteria established by the minister.
