People participate in many different social groups. Sociology looks at how our participation in groups influences the ways that we look at and confront the challenges of everyday life: working, learning to live with others, loving, communicating — sociology examines how and why we do what we do.
Sociology, together with the other social sciences, tries to look clearly and critically at the myriad of social issues and problems that we struggle to solve: inequality, poverty, sexism, racism, violence, environmental damage, etc. The sociological imagination strives to create a more objective understanding of how and why we live as we do, more objective than the rationalizations and justifications to which we so frequently resort.
If you want to work with people — if you want to teach or manage or facilitate human endeavour — then you will probably be interested in sociology and its many ways of asking questions about the human condition.
UCFV offers a combined major in sociology/anthropology, a major in sociology, and a minor in sociology as part of its Bachelor of Arts program. Students cannot combine a sociology/anthropology major with a minor in sociology or anthropology.
This section specifies the major and minor discipline requirements only. Information on additional Bachelor of Arts requirements begins in this section.
