What will I learn?

Sociology aims to understand patterns of human social life in all their historical and current diversity: how people live, think, feel, believe, and act, comparing our own society with others. Memorial University's Department of Sociology is the largest in Atlantic Canada, with specialties in social theory, criminology and deviance, environmental sociology, social inequality, sociology of gender, sexuality, development, work, culture and health, including occupational health, political sociology, and maritime sociology. Faculty research engages with communities and social issues in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada and internationally, and is regularly supported through grants from SSHRC, CIHR, and other funding bodies.

MA – The MA program offers coursework and research paper, or coursework and thesis options. The research paper option includes courses, proposal preparation and presentation and writing of a Major Research Paper. It is normally completed in one year of full-time study. The thesis option includes courses, thesis proposal preparation, research data collection and analysis, and writing of the thesis. This normally takes at least two years of full-time study.
