  • Courses in Sociology will help the student to understand personal and global events in a relevant and meaningful way, and to cope with an increasingly complex society.  Sociology challenges many of our everyday assumptions about the world and emphasizes a critical approach towards our most important institutions.

    A major in Sociology can lead to work in many areas, including: teaching, social work, criminal justice, criminology, industrial sociology, communications, journalism and other media jobs, demography, urban planning, international development, and government research.

    University Transfer Credit

    All Sociology courses at Capilano transfer to SFU, UBC, UNBC and UVic. All 200 level courses will provide the SFU transfer student with assigned credit toward second-year courses. The UBC transfer student will be provided with unassigned credit towards a major.
