Enrich Your Education

We balance in-class lecture with experiential learning opportunities, including research labs and field trips. We make it our priority to exemplify theoretical knowledge with real-world experience and visit local organizations whenever possible, such as Shelter House Thunder Bay. 

Our focus on research means you will graduate with the ability to design and conduct questionnaires and interviews, gather historical and present-day data, and interpret your findings with a perceptive theoretical lens. Our students routinely secure discipline-specific employment, due to their practical background in research methods and analysis. Many go on to pursue post-graduate degrees in fields such as sociology, education, law, public health, and medicine.

Every year we host a series of workshops for third and fourth year students with information about how to apply to graduate school and obtain valuable scholarships. This sets our students up for success and ensures everyone has equal access to beneficial resources and information.
