Sociology is the study of individuals and society, and highlights social difference. What makes sociology unique among academic disciplines is its focus on the linkages between our individual experiences and the context of the wider society in which we live. Investigating the social ties between private and public, agency and structure, or individual and society is at the heart of sociology. The mission of the Department of Sociology at UBC is to provide students with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to critically apply the sociological perspective to their own lives and to the social worlds in which they live.
