Sociology is an area of study that is unfamiliar to many incoming students because it is seldom taught in high school. It is a vibrant discipline that allows students to develop both personally and professionally. As a sociology major you will have the opportunity to learn how humans behave and interact in groups—whether small groups like families or large groups like religious organizations. You will also learn how one’s position in the larger society (youth or elderly, man or woman, poor or rich) shapes life chances and experiences from the cradle to the grave. About our department.
