Administrative Assistants Jill DeBon, Linda Landry 905-688-5550, extension 3455 Academic South 401 https://brocku.ca/sociology/ The various disciplines of the Department of Sociology (social anthropology, social psychology and sociology) are concerned broadly with processes, structure and behaviour conditioned by participation in social groups. The Department is committed to a conception of the social sciences as scientific disciplines and to the belief that sound social action projects should be based on rigorous scientific effort, and to the view that social analysis is a complex process and that no one discipline can provide a complete perspective. Business, government, organized labour and voluntary associations increasingly require an understanding of group behaviour. Sociology in Canada has made significant contributions to our knowledge of elites and the class structure, the tensions between Québec and the rest of the country, gender relations, ethnic and sex segregation in the work force, crime and delinquency, regional underdevelopment, and equality of opportunity. Sociological input has been invited by and contributed to the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, the Task Force on Canadian Unity, the Commission on the Non-medical Use of Drugs and other government agencies and departments. Public policies in the areas of education, aboriginal peoples, crime and delinquency, official languages and regionalism have all benefited from sociological analysis. Undergraduate training in Sociology provides students with a broad and scientific approach to society that both enhances understanding of social issues and provides a valuable basis for employment in human service industries. Students declaring a major in Sociology can pursue one of four programs: an Honours BA program either in Sociology alone or as a combined major and a Pass BA program either (single or combined). In addition to combined major programs in other academic departments, Sociology students may co-major in interdisciplinary Centres such as Canadian Studies, Environment, Labour Studies or Women's Studies. Students may be admitted to the BA Honours or combined Honours program at any time. The Honours program provides students with the opportunity for a more intensive examination of issues in the field. Application to Year 4 (Honours) is by application (available on line at https://brocku.ca/registrar/forms/index.html or the Registrar's Office) and requires a minimum 70 percent major average. Students declaring a major in Sociology (Honours, Pass, [single or combined]) are responsible for ensuring that their programs satisfy the departmental requirements. Faculty advice is available on request. To declare a major in Sociology, normally at the completion of SOCI 1F90, a declaration of major form must be completed (available on-line at https://brocku.ca/registrar/forms/index.html or at the Registrar's Office) and a minimum 60 percent Sociology average is required. Collaborative Study in Policing and Criminal Justice The Collaborative Studies in Policing and Criminal Justice program involves courses offered through Brock and Niagara College of Applied Arts and Technology. This four-year program combines training in policing and criminal justice with an education in a chosen academic discipline, which may be either Political Science, Psychology or Sociology. leading to a BA (Honours) in Sociology. For students majoring in Sociology, this four-year program leads to a BA (Honours) in Sociology and a diploma in Police Foundations from Niagara College. The program caters to the increasing demand in society for professionals who possess both solid applied skills and the substantive knowledge needed to apply them to the areas of policing and criminal justice. This would ordinarily involve attending college after gaining a university degree, but the Brock and Niagara program combines the two in a single integrated package. Consult the Policing and Criminal Justice Listing for further details. Enrolment is limited.
