The Department of Sociology at Brock University is committed to a critical, social justice approach that challenges everyday assumptions about the world in which we live, and examines the social institutions, relationships and conditions that shape our world.

Sociology, by its very nature, encompasses all spheres of social life. Accordingly, it allows you to delve into a rich variety of fascinating topics of great historical and contemporary relevance including animal studies, gender, poverty, the prison system, sexuality, race and racism.

Enhance your ability to critically examine the social conventions and regulations that circumscribe our lives and explore possibilities for progressive social change.
