Take your education outside of the classroom

A main goal of our Sociology and Anthropology program is to provide you with tools to engage with real world issues. We encourage our students to use these tools both in and out of the classroom.

How can you get involved?

There are a variety of ways to get involved, both on and off campus. Your professors can help you to figure out which of the following options may work for you:

SOAN Student Societyinvolve

Each year, students taking courses in SOAN usually form a student society. The society organizes social events, provides networking opportunities with your fellow classmates, and more.

MSVU Student Union

The Mount Saint Vincent University Students’ Union (MSVUSU) is a student elected and governed non-profit organization which exists to serve the needs and protect the rights of Mount students.

BA Internship program

Mount Saint Vincent University is pleased to be offering a new internship program for Bachelor of Arts and Science students. The internship program is an educational strategy that integrates your academic studies with one internship work term with an employer. You will gain work experience in the corporate, government or non-profit sectors. Click here for more information.

Co-curricular recognition program (CCR)

The Co-Curricular Recognition Program (CCR) is a way for students to formally document all of their non-academic, extra-curricular involvement in an official format called a Co-Curricular Record. It may include activities such as volunteer work, athletics, awards and other leadership activities. You can request your record at any time for reasons such as job applications, award nominations, or scholarship opportunities. Click here for more information.
