Sociology

The study of sociology explores individual human interactions, the building and maintaining of societies, and global social processes.

Simply put, sociology seeks to answer “why people do what they do.” Students will begin by analyzing their own personal experiences using the sociological imagination.

This program will train students to explain the effect that social forces and social institutions have on individual and group behavior; and understand structural inequalities based on age, race, class, gender and other social constructions resulting in differences of power, property and prestige

With a degree in Sociology, students can pursue careers in social welfare and social change and/or pursue graduate study in the social sciences.
