Comments about Associate of Arts Degree in Sociology - At the institution - Victoria - British Columbia

  • Objectives
    Sociologists seek to understand how groups and group interactions influence human behaviour; how cultural, historical, socio-political, and economic factors influence group interactions; how social phenomena such as sexuality and gender, crime and deviance, ethnicity, family and community, socialization, religion, social movements, aging, and social/global stratification play a role in shaping our society. Sociologists conduct research, teach, counsel, and find work in the fields of law, social work and journalism, and government and even health-care fields. The Associate of Arts Degree program is designed to provide you with two years of study in your chosen academic area. As you work through your studies, you’ll complete 20 courses that will transfer to third year of a Bachelor Degree program at a BC university.
