Undergraduate Studies in Sociology and Anthropology

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology invites you to join us in our exploring the world in a variety of ways: through reading books, watching films, listening to guest speakers, doing research, and participating in class discussions. Both sociologists and anthropologists at Simon Fraser University are involved in research and teaching in societies across the world, and on the theoretical and comparative questions that go beyond national boundaries.

As well as its intrinsic intellectual rewards, undergraduate training in sociology and anthropology provides invaluable background for students who intend to pursue careers in such fields as urban planning, journalism, law, public administration, social policy, teaching, personnel management, health care fields, and international development projects. Learn more about what you can do with a career in sociology or anthropology.



Programs and Courses

We offer a number of options within undergraduate studies, including a minor, an extended minor, a major, a joint major, and honours program. We also offer a Social Justice Certificate and a Post Baccalaureate Diploma in Social Policy.

Our courses are designed to provide students with the theoretical and analytical tools to better understand the social and cultural forces that affect our lives and the lives of people in other societies.
