St. Jerome's University has made its reputation over the years mainly through the excellence of its teaching. However, its contribution to the University of Waterloo and to higher learning in general also takes the form of strong scholarship and original research. Without this on-going work, university teaching at the University would be less rich and meaningful than it is.
Faculty members in the Department of Sociology & Legal Studies conduct research in four areas:
- Critical Approaches to Power & Authority
- Law in Context
- Society & Culture
- Theory & Methodology
