Go Make an Impact

Sociology is the scientific study of human behavior, social groups, and society. Sociology is distinguished from traditional theoretical Sociology by a framework of analysis for understanding how groups form and function as communities and how social habits evolve and influence community development.

Our emphasis is on professional practices as well as scholarship, with a career orientation and experiential learning approach. We provide first-person experience in analyzing and dealing with processes, problems and institutions of modern society. Partnering with other programs in the Social Sciences and with the community, the Sociology major emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning.

Graduates of our program seek employment in social services, management, teaching, research, sales, public relations, and many other fields.
