University of the West Indies - Bachelor of Science in Sociology
Sociology helps explain people’s behaviour, beliefs, and identities. It helps us understand organizations, economies, and communities. Perhaps most importantly, sociology helps us understand ourselves.
In our programme, you’ll explore a range of social dynamics and problems. Learn more about the organization of cities, the impact of new technologies, and how consumption, racism, gender identities, migration, and conflict shape social structures. Using interviews, surveys, maps, and observation, you will learn to analyze and explain how people adopt roles in society, how inequality persists, and how power operates.
Our vibrant faculty are experts in their fields, and our staff is committed to excellence in student support and academic advising. The Department of Sociology, Psychology, and Social Work offers one of the largest, most productive, and most innovative communities of scholars engaged in interdisciplinary research and teaching in sociology. With this diverse education, our graduates have gone on to careers in community work, social services, law enforcement, social research, education, and more.
