Understanding the Dynamics of Groups
Sociology students develop a theoretically-informed and evidence-based understanding of the social world and its impact on human behavior. The Sociology Department offers a Bachelor of Arts degree with concentrations in either general sociology or anthropology. Students embark on the systematic analysis of people in groups, from individual families to large social institutions.
Sociologists seek to understand distinctive social processes that affect conflict and change, and to apply this knowledge to social issues that challenge society today.
Using Your Sociology Degree
Our majors go on to enjoy graduate study in sociology, social work, law, and counseling or immediately transition into careers in such fields as social services, business and government. The sharp analytical skills acquired by our graduates have also been applied to market research and program evaluation.
