Что я буду изучать?


Sociologists explore the way human interaction shapes our culture, and employ the ideas of leading social theorists for comprehensive answers. As a StFX Sociology student, you will be introduced to innovative methods of looking at the social world, human behavior and societies.


Sociology students are among the most active at StFX, a fact often attributed to the professors who give you the tools you need to ask tough questions, make informed social choices and become personally engaged in change.

You will explore different vantage points and gain access to in-house expertise in areas including social movements, the environment, the various forms of social inequality, and theories concerning racial equality, identity and the self, media and cultural studies, rural sociology, fisheries, criminology, disability studies, deviance, social difference, gender identity and more.


In your first year, SOCI 101 and 102 acquaints you with the foundational concepts and methods of Sociology. Key sociological theorists like Marx, Durkheim, and Weber, are explored, along with the principles of critical research methods. Each is presented as a tool for understanding a wide range of experiences, from the search for identity to the creation of a new ‘global’ world order. The works of these writers are complemented by those of more contemporary theorists and researchers.


With a broad understanding of social interaction, cultural meanings and the development of societies, you will have opportunity to impact people’s lives in professions like education, law, social research, social planning, social work or social justice.
