Description: The Sociology program at Carleton brings together elements of the social sciences and humanities as it examines human social behaviour and organization in the context of post-industrial societies and economic and cultural globalization.

You will explore social phenomena such as youth and crime, war and state violence, anti-capitalist social movements, the changing nature of families, the meanings of popular culture in the digital age, transformations in the organization of work, the changing place of women in social institutions, the re-emergence of religion as a cultural force, and many other topics designed to enhance your understanding of the forces shaping the modern world. At the same time, the study of sociology develops skills in statistical and interview-based research, data analysis, synthesis of knowledge, and written and oral communication.
