Sociology at Crandall

If you know a student who cares about the world around them and would like to participate in making it a better place (particularly for the poor and marginalized), then Crandall’s Sociology program is an incredible fit! Sociology students have the privilege of learning from and working with professors who are concerned about the problems in society and collaborate with them about creative solutions to such problems.

In order to make the world a better place, one must understand how society functions – both successfully and unsuccessfully. This is a major focus of our Sociology program.

Students learn from passionate professors who are experts in their fields. Some of the compelling areas of study in Crandall’s BA in Sociology include Globalization, Personal Identity, Deviant Behaviour, Poverty & Marginalization, Social Justice, Sociological Theory, Indigenous Peoples of Canada, and much more.

Outcomes and Careers

Crandall’s Sociology program helps students improve research, critical thinking, and communication skills as they study topics such as education, religion, poverty, gender, ethnic diversity, and more. Students are invited and encouraged to be involved in the community and beyond and, ultimately, to become true difference-makers in a hurting world.

The skills acquired through Crandall’s BA in Sociology will prepare students for a broad range of career pathways, such as Education, International Relations, Social Service, Ministry, Corrections, Government, and more! Recent Sociology grads have gone on to pursue graduate studies at institutions such as McMaster, Baylor, U of Ottawa, McGill, and Wilfrid Laurier.

Fun Fact!

Sociology students have the exciting opportunity to graduate with a Concentration in Social Justice by focusing on courses like Perspectives on Poverty, Population and World Hunger, and Globalization and Current Social Issues. Additionally, Crandall’s Cross Cultural Certificate is an excellent addition to the BA in Sociology.
