The Department of Sociology at the University of Calgary is among the top rated research

oriented departments in the country. Our programs at all levels emphasize core knowledge

in classical and contemporary social theories, social statistics and diverse sociological methods.

In addition, the faculty has a wide range of substantive interests.

Around the Department

GREATsupervisor Awards

Every year, FGS asks all graduate programs to nominate supervisors who are particularly worthy of recognition in their work with their students. Lisa Young, Dean of Graduate Studies, and Dave Hansen present the nominated supervisors with a ‘GREATsupervisor’ mug at the annual ‘mugging’ event. Sociology's Dr. Tom Langford was recognized this year with a Great Supervisor award. Congratulations, Dr. Langford!

The Department of Sociology’s newest PhD

Dr. Diane Field received her degree at Convocation on November 16, 2018. Dr. Field’s thesis, “Achieving Publicly Funded Midwifery in Alberta: A Case Study of the Changing Nature of Midwifery Work” was supervised by Dr. Tom Langford and Dr. Ariel Ducey (co-supervisor).

MA graduates Stephanie Cantlay and Reiss Kruger also received their degrees at the November Convocation.

Academics Without Borders (AWB) supports Dr. Madibbo’s volunteer teaching in Sudan

AWB will provide financial and logistical assistance to support Dr. Madibbo’s university teaching in Sudan in December 2018. The teaching is part of the initiatives of the Winter University that Dr. Madibbo has created in Sudan.

We invite sociology students to participate in a group study program that will take place in Mexico during the spring semester of 2019. The program will include two courses at both the senior undergraduate and graduate level: Social Issues in Mexico, and Inter-Cultural Practice: Collaboration for Social Justice. Students will spend about two weeks in Mexico City, and about one week in a rural area in the State of Puebla.
