Becoming an Engaged and Informed Citizen: Welcome to Sociology at UTM

Sociology at UTM is one of the highest ranked sociology departments in the world, particularly in the area of law and society and criminology (other areas of strength include sociology of gender, sociology of culture and food, and the sociology of inequality). Our research and teaching expertise covers a diverse range of topics that are central to understanding and explaining the state of society and social change.

At the undergraduate level, we offer Specialist, Major, and Minor programs in Sociology, and Specialist and Major programs in Criminology, Law & Society. As part of the tri-campus graduate department of Sociology, we also offer training for MA and PhD students through teaching and advising. The graduate program is administered at the downtown campus.

Through our broad range of course offerings, we prepare students for further study in graduate or professional programs, as well as provide the intellectual tools required to be engaged and informed citizens.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our programs and student research opportunities; please feel free to also contact us with questions you may have.
