Our Department

McGill University’s Department of Sociology is recognized as an exceptional place for learning and research: It is consistently ranked among the top sociology departments in the world, McGill has been ranked as Canada’s best university for 15-years running, and Montreal is recognized as one of the best cities in the world for students to complete their studies. The Department offers Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Ph.D. degrees and focuses on giving students at all levels valuable state-of-the-art methods and research training that will allow them to pursue successful and meaningful careers in a variety of areas. Our commitment to scholarly mentorship and size create a nurturing and supportive environment for students at all levels. We provide our students with opportunities to take small, research-intensive seminars, pursue individual interests, and work closely with professors. Our faculty include award-winning researchers and teachers with a strong international focus. While faculty are experts on a variety of issues, the Department has three broad areas of specialization: comparative political sociology and development, diversity and inequalities, and population and health.
