The BA Major in the Sociology program at Kwantlen is the only program of this kind in BC that involves a practicum component, which provides students with the opportunity to volunteer in a local or global context in a community-based setting, make employment contacts, and apply knowledge students have learned in class in the field.

Students will develop a broad understanding of the social, cultural, economic, and political relationships between local, regional, and global communities, which are important and desired qualifications sought by prospective employers in the public, private and non-profit organizations. Any student can take our courses as Arts electives, whether they're getting a Sociology degree or a major in something else, or haven't figured that out yet.
