Fall-Winter Courses   Summer Courses   Syllabus Archive

Our first year courses introduce students to the concepts and methods that sociologists use in analyzing and understanding the social world. Students are challenged to rethink their assumptions as they explore the various topics studied and approaches used across the discipline.

Second year courses allow students to explore a particular area in depth and learn more about the research methods that sociologists use to understand the social world.

Our 300-level and 400-level courses delve deeply into specific topics and provide students with advanced skills development in critical thinking, analysis, and academic writing. In addition to our regular courses, students may also enroll in an Independent Research Course to pursue a specific topic of interest.

Each year, we offer a rotation of "New Topics in Sociology" courses at the 200, 300 and 400 levels. These courses teach up-to date research and highlight areas of our faculty's research expertise. See this year's New Topics in Sociology.


Many of our courses offer students the experience to conduct their own research. Students might also apply to the University of Toronto Excellence Awards program to work with a faculty member during the summer term.

Study Abroad

Students who wish to take courses through a Study Abroad Program should consult with the transfer credit office. If the course you wish to take is not listed there, please submit a detailed syllabus of the course to the undergraduate chair, Christian Caron, for assessment.
