Administrative Co-ordinators Jill DeBon, Lesa Mansfield 905-688-5550, extension 3455 Academic South 400A brocku.ca/sociology The Department of Sociology offers students a unique opportunity to cultivate their intellectual curiosity and social awareness, and to develop their capacity to engage in a critical, informed and self-reflective way with the key social institutions, relationships and processes shaping the world in which they live. Sociology, by its very nature, encompasses all spheres of social life. Accordingly, it allows students to delve into a rich variety of fascinating topics of the greatest historical and contemporary relevance: animal studies; gender; sexism; family life; sexuality; race and racism; cultural identity; globalization; imperialism and colonialism; immigration; poverty and class inequality; work and the economy; education; religion; the environment; crime, prisons and social repression and social movements. Underlying the wide range of issues taken up in the department's teaching and research activities is a shared commitment to analyzing inequality, oppression and exploitation in all of their varied manifestations and exploring the forms of resistance and struggle to which they give rise. Students of Sociology develop useful skills that they can carry forward into many areas of their future lives. They learn the basic principles and techniques of social research and are given the opportunity to develop more advanced skills in both qualitative and statistical analysis. They expand their critical thinking, theory-construction and problem-solving abilities and sharpen their skills in oral and written expression. Finally, by learning to develop and to support their ideas while remaining responsive to contending opinions and perspectives, they greatly enhance their ability to work constructively with others, to think outside the narrow confines of ingrained cultural prejudices and habitual forms of "common sense," and to respond creatively and proactively to a wide range of personal, social and political challenges. Students declaring a major in Sociology can pursue one of six programs: an Honours BA program either in Sociology alone or as a combined major, a BA with Major (either single or combined) and a 3-year 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, Labour Studies or Women's and Gender Studies. Students with a minimum 70 percent Sociology average may declare the BA Honours or combined Honours program as well as a Concentration in Criminology or Concentration in Critical Animal Studies before June 1 of any study year. The Honours program provides students with the opportunity for a more intensive examination of issues in the field. Request for admission to Year 4 (Honours) is by application through a Year 4 Studies form (available online at brocku.ca/webfm_send/1377 or the Registrar's Office) and requires a minimum 70 percent major average and completion of a minimum of 13.5 overall credits. Submit honours applications to the Department Administrator. Students with a minimum 60 percent Sociology average may declare the BA with Major (single or combined), BA Pass (single or combined) major, Critical Animal Studies or Sociology Minor before June 1 of any study year. Submit Declaration of Major form to Department Administrator. Students declaring a major in Sociology (Honours, BA with Major, Pass) are responsible for ensuring that their programs satisfy the departmental requirements. The Department Administrator provides academic advising to Sociology students upon request. Students book advising online. To declare a major, minor, or concentration in Sociology, normally at the completion of SOCI 1F90 with a minimum 60 percent average, a Declare or Change Major form must be completed (available online at brocku.ca/webfm_send/1400 or at the Office of the Registrar) and submitted for approval to the Department Administrator by June 1. To book an appointment with the Department Administrator go to my.brocku.ca/BrockDB/reg_Advising, select appointments-academic advising-social sciences-sociology. The requirements for graduation with a BA (Honours) are a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average . The requirements for a BA with Major and a Pass BA are a minimum 60 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent overall average.  
Sociology and Labour Studies-George Brown College Go to top of document
This program involves courses offered through Brock and George Brown College of Applied Arts and Technology. This four-year program combines courses and training in applied labour studies settings at George Brown College with a degree at Brock. The program caters to individuals who wish to have a career in a wide variety of areas including unionized environments, occupational health and safety, politics, or human resources. The program allows students to gain both solid applied skills in these areas and a strong theoretical knowledge about a variety of these topics. Students who successfully complete the requirements for this program will be granted both a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Sociology and Labour Studies degree from Brock and two certificates from George Brown College: 1) a certificate in Contemporary Labour Perspectives from the George Brown School of Labour, and 2) a Post-Graduate Certificate in Human Resources Management. Gaining both a degree and these certificates would ordinarily involve attending college after earning a university degree, but the Brock and George Brown program combines the two in a single integrated package that can be completed in four years. Applicants must have a minimum 70 percent overall average to be considered for admission to the program. Volunteer experience is considered an asset. Successful applicants must maintain a minimum 70 percent overall average during Year 2 and meet other program requirements to continue in the program. Enrolment in this program is limited. Admission to the program is not guaranteed by attainment of the minimum requirements. Application forms for the Sociology and Labour Studies program are available from the Office of the Dean of Social Sciences. Please consult the Labour Studies entry for a listing of program requirements.  
Policing and Criminal Justice Go to top of document
The 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 Political Science, Psychology or Sociology. For students majoring in Sociology, this four-year program leads to a BA with Major 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. Enrolment is limited. Please consult the Policing and Criminal Justice entry for a listing of program requirements.
