Make a positive impact on society through empathy and understanding.

TWU’s Sociology program provides an exceptional opportunity to match your studies and values in order to create positive social change.

As a sociology major, you will gain the knowledge and skills to understand people and contemporary culture. Our exceptional faculty have specialized in culture, race and ethnicity, social inequality, family, religion, and social change. Our sociology students also have the option of completing the Human Services certificate program. This program has an applied focus in sociology, with opportunities to choose from a wide variety of practicums in helping professions. Practicums include areas in social service agencies that are governmental, non-governmental, profit or non-profit organizations, or faith-based organizations. Sociology students may complete a semester at the Laurentian Leadership Centre in Ottawa, where they complete classes toward their degree while enjoying a rewarding internship. There is also the option of adding a minor in Gender Studies which offers students the opportunity to understand the role of gender in society, its structural framework in different countries, the perception of gender in the West, and a study of how the concept of gender has evolved throughout the centuries.
