Sociology

Sociology

Sociology is a scientific discipline concerned with the explanation of social life and human behaviour of all kinds. It equips students with the skills to understand the breadth of social practice, ranging from the global (including power and politics, conflict and peace processes, security, the digital world, climate change, racism and social justice) to individual experiences (such as the body, intimacy, emotions, identity, beliefs and mental health).

Through theoretical tools and methodological techniques, Sociology at Queen’s provides students with a unique way of interacting with the world as critical and engaged citizens.

“My Sociology degree opened my eyes about the world. I now question everything and my curiosity has grown! It has helped in my current job as I developed my analytical and problemsolving skills, which are essential for the workplace.”
