Courses

Below is a full list of courses that the department offers. Most are one‑term courses (half‑courses). Required courses are offered every year. Other courses are offered when faculty resources are available and when experience has shown them to be reasonably well attended. Although the Department's policy for each core in our eight areas of research specialization to be taught at least once evry two years, it tries to ensure that each core course is taught annually. Around 25 half‑courses are normally offered in any academic year. Click on the timetable link (Summer or Fall/Winter)for information on current offerings.

A reading course may be taken when no course in the same sub‑field is offered. This must be arranged with a member of the Sociology Department graduate faculty who is on campus over the required 13‑week period and is willing to meet with the student on a regular basis. The content, mode of assessment and frequency of meetings for any reading course must be approved by the Associate Chair, Graduate Studies. Regular courses are not usually scheduled during the summer session but reading courses are often taken over this period.
