Sociology provides students with a broad perspective of the societies that we live in, how they have evolved and where they are headed. It is a discipline concerned with the forces that influence our behaviour, our interactions with one another and our identity. When studying sociology at Burlington Danes, students will focus closely on how the family unit, education and crime affect social inequality and political conflict. This interesting social science is taught in a challenging and supportive environment.
