About this course

Sociology is the study of human behaviour as it is shaped by society and in turn affects the social contexts in which we live. Contexts include informal groups, families, classrooms, work organizations, cultures, and societies. The effects of social categories on human behaviour constitute a topic of central interest within sociology. Sociologists use a variety of research methods, including historical analysis, participant observation, surveys, and field and laboratory experiments. You can select a Major, Minor, or Honours degree in Sociology.
