Sociology is the study of social life and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. We examine urban and rural life, family patterns and gendered relationships, social change, race and ethnic relations, work and occupations, social stratification, the environment, health services, technology, communications, social movements, global issues, and deviance.
The Sociology Major will prepare you for work in social service and government agencies, community organizations, school systems, correctional facilities, industrial settings, public relations firms, or prepare you to go on for graduate studies in fields such as law, social work, higher education and public administration. The possibilities are endless, given the breadth, adaptability and utility of sociology.
