These are just some of the questions asked by sociologists, so it's not hard to see why the study of sociology is important in our contemporary world. And whether you want to pursue a degree in sociology, or take courses in it as part of an interdisciplinary program, or just for your own interest, you can be sure there are many opportunities for future study and/or employment in this area.

Here we want to highlight and share with you a little about the people and study that make up the University of Winnipeg's Department of Sociology in the following.
