Faculty of Arts & Science
Department of Sociology

Sociology opens new windows onto understanding our social world. Sociological perspectives and methods guide innovative intellectual and research agendas in many disciplines and professions today. And U of T's Department of Sociology is at the forefront of the field. Our sociologists analyze social data and observe social patterns to address questions about our society and the ways in which it is changing. The results have far-reaching impacts. Not only do they inform the development of new ideas for understanding social interactions, they also inform social policy, programs and laws. Our sociologists frequently consult with community groups and policy-makers at municipal, provincial, federal and international levels. With teaching and research strength in immigration and ethnic relations, health and mental health, networks and community, gender and family, crime, labour markets and political sociology—the department offers over 5,000 undergraduate students and 100 graduate students inspired instruction on the essential aspects of modern life. Your gift will support education and scholarship in this important field.
