Mount Allison’s Department of Sociology takes an innovative approach to the study of our society.

In the Sociology department, students are regularly called upon to take what they have learned in class and apply it in real-world situations. Independent research is also supported and encouraged.

Sociology helps students develop their perspective on society, examining it from different points of view and in different contexts. It facilitates understanding how and why society is organized as it is, and how it might be changed to create a more just, more equitable social world.

The discipline challenges students to think critically about the world around them and prepares them to participate in it.
