With origins in Latin and Greek, the word “Sociology” literally means the study of companions. And for those fascinated with social behaviour and societal norms, along with the origins, development, and organization of communities, TWU’s Sociology program provides an exceptional program of study.
A major in sociology exposes students to every aspect of the study of society, including an understanding of social order, social policy, welfare, and other social processes.
Faculty in this department specialize in the study of religion and globalization, human services and community development, family and work, race and ethnic relations, and organizational behaviour. A Human Services certificate is offered through this program, as well as several practica to offer work experience in relevant professions. In addition, students can gain course credit through the Laurentian Leadership Centre in Ottawa.
