Social, Cultural and Media Studies

Explore society and culture

The Social, Cultural and Media Studies department offers courses and degrees across the disciplines of Anthropology, Indo Canadian Studies, Latin American Studies, Media and Communications Studies, Sociology and Women's Studies. 

These disciplines, along with other social sciences, help to develop our understanding of contemporary social issues. In other words, they help us understand how and why we live as we do.

We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the Canadian Sociological Association's call for resisting anti-black racism, police/ state violence and colonialism in all communities. We affirm our commitment to anti-racism and decolonization in society and call for an end to racialized violence and other forms of intersecting systemic inequalities and discrimination.
