You are curious about people and the ways they act and interact. You want to understand how human connections and relationships influence social dynamics. Study sociology and lift the veil on the world around you.

Through community-based assignments, independent study courses, honours projects and integrated-learning opportunities, our students choose their own paths as fully engaged learners and researchers.
