Sociology, Department of

Courses in Sociology were first taught at Queen's in 1952 by Professor John Meisel in the Department of Political and Economic Science (see Economics and Political Studies). In response to rapidly growing interest in the discipline, a separate department was established in 1969.

The department offers a variety of courses on social relations and their development and change. Courses in social anthropology are also included in the department's offerings.

The department was the first at Queen's to offer a course in women's studies; the course Women and Social Structure was devised and offered in the early 1970s.
