Sociology Department

Ever wonder why people listen to certain types of music, dress the way they do, commit crimes or live in certain ways? Sociology engages these and other related questions by looking deep into the social character and systemic organization of human interaction.

King's offers a concentration in Sociology in the 3-year Bachelor of Arts and in the 4-year Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies, as well as a minor in Sociology. We also offer pre-professional studies in Social Work.

Some Sociology courses available include: Marriage and Family, Deviance and Criminology, Gender, Religion, Social Inequity, Media and Society, Film and Contemporary Culture, Socio-cultural Aspects of Sport, and Christian Social and Political Movements.

Students interested in sociology field research have the opportunity to conduct their own projects under the supervision of a professor as part of King's Community Engaged Research initiative.
