Our Department

The Sociology Department at Memorial University is one of the largest departments in Atlantic Canada. Faculty and graduate students research within several core areas: Social Theory, Sociology of Culture, Criminology, Environmental Sociology, Social Inequity, Sociology of Gender, Sexuality, Health, Development, Work and Labour, Political Sociology, Maritime Sociology, and Sociology of Science and Techology, as well as other specialities.

In our teaching and research, we draw on a wide range of approaches – basic and applied, theoretical and empirical, quantitative and qualitative. We have always strived to be a publically engaged department, and our students and faculty are involved in a wide range of projects in partnership with members of the public of Newfoundland and Labrador and beyond.
