York Sociology: A Public Sociology

SOCI video projectOur department’s contribution to the world of sociological thought and research is to offer our students a sociology of engagement; a critical approach to scholarship that challenges assumptions, and in so doing, aims for greater social justice and an appreciation that history – our own and that of others around the world – has a lasting impact on the present.

This commitment is evident in our faculty members’ local and international work with communities and organizations,and in the public recognition of our faculty as experts in their respective fields. Our faculty members are passionately involved in innovative and meaningful research that addresses vital social issues of our time.
