At Concordia, a sociology degree equips you to address critical human services issues, including homelessness, youth development, domestic and family crisis issues, addiction, mental health challenges, and critical aspects of modern law enforcement.

Sociology is a focal point for many sectors of society as governments, non-profits, and businesses all seek ways to serve and support people in a wide range of difficult circumstances.

Program Details

Students pursuing their BA in Sociology from Concordia establish a solid foundation in coursework focused on social theory, research methods, and statistical application. They then explore coursework focused on fundamental societal frameworks around the impact of socio-economic class structures and social organization.

From there, students have opportunities to pursue focused areas of study around marriage and family, diversity and minority-focused issues, criminal justice systems, and social welfare. 

Along with hands-on internship opportunities, students can also pursue further coursework to bring even deeper expertise in issues related to statutory and criminal law aspects of sociology, adult development and aging, and other elective options that allow for self-directed areas of focus. 

The BA in Sociology puts you in a strong position to pursue a meaningful, community-impact career.
