Sociology contributes to understanding our social world by studying how groups, organizations, societies, and their cultural products are produced, reproduced and transformed by the actions and interactions of people in social contexts. The Sociology program cultivates students' sociological imaginations by offering a wide range of opportunities to think sociologically and to use different theoretical approaches, research methods and data-analysis techniques so students gain experience thinking with and using a sociological perspective.
The Bachelor of Arts degree is offered as either a B.A. or B.A. (Honours), both requiring the completion of 120 units and normally four years of full-time study.
