Bachelor of Arts with Major in Social/Cultural Studies Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland




Course info


This four-year Bachelor of Arts program explores the rituals, norms, beliefs, conflicts, and traditions that underpin culture and society.

By studying present and past cultural practices, and social and cultural shifts, students engage critically with important issues such as medical systems, the influences of mass media, global issues and trends, and the formation of group and personal identities. This program encourages students to learn about and contribute to contemporary debates on social and cultural issues that affect their daily lives and futures.

Why study social/cultural studies at Grenfell?

Grenfell's social/cultural studies provides you with a broad, multidisciplinary education in contemporary social and cultural phenomena, and prepares students to engage with our multicultural, global, mass mediated and interconnected world as citizens, workers and scholars. Our practical fieldwork courses involve original field research with human participants, and entail a broad range of skill sets applicable to many areas of employment after graduation. Our focus on critical reading and effective writing provides lifelong skills. This is your invitation to join a vast, interactive learning experience where you approach the study of culture and society within present-day and historical contexts and from three distinct, yet complementary perspectives:

  • Anthropology
  • Folklore
  • Sociology

These three areas share an emphasis on the individual experience and interpretation of culture and each rely on the ethnographic method - an approach that helps you understand the world from the perspective of the people you are studying. In the Program there are opportunities for original field research under the mentorship of your professors.
