Bachelor of Arts Sociology
Concordia University of Edmontonconcordia.ab.ca
The study of Sociology is intended to stimulate individuals to think about society and to apply imaginative and critical analyses to the many facets of social life and to social interactions. The overarching goal is to systematically develop a strong working knowledge of the theory, concepts, basic research, methodology, publications, and independent and applied research practices in the field of Sociology. It is designed to give students more exposure to senior level course content, more experience with seminar styled participation, and the option to pursue a research emphasis that will include an independent project. The goal of the four-year program in Sociology is to more specifically prepare students for careers related to Sociology. Graduates of the four-year program would have additional skills to pursue careers in criminal justice, administration, social work, rehabilitation counseling, law, social services for youth/women/the elderly/families, career counseling, policy analysis, market research, and demography. They would also have greater opportunity to pursue further education in graduate studies or professional programs such as education, law, social work, or health care.
