Bruce McGuigan


What courses does Bruce teach?

Intro, Inequality, Urban Sociology, Theory, Canadian Society, Sociology of Identity.


Why did Bruce choose to teach Sociology?

The BEST thing about teaching is what you learn.  In sociology, I learn something new every day, not just from re-reading old books and reading new ones, but from the ideas that come from my students about the social world. I leave every day excited about what I am learning!


What does Bruce love about VIU?

I have attended or taught at ten universities and colleges.  VIU is the real deal.  VIU is genuinely committed to students in a way that I have never seen before. We are an open admission university that produces real scholars, and where people from a variety of backgrounds come to improve their lives.  It is a real privilege to be part of that.
