Sociology aims to understand patterns of human social life in all their historical and current diversity: how people live, think, feel, believe, and act, comparing our own society with others. Memorial University's Department of Sociology is the largest in Atlantic Canada, with specialties in social theory, criminology and deviance, environmental sociology, social inequality, sociology of gender, sexuality, development, work, culture and health, including occupational health, political sociology, and maritime sociology. Faculty research engages with communities and social issues in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada and internationally, and is regularly supported through grants from SSHRC, CIHR, and other funding bodies.
