Female student observes group discussion Sociology, the scientific study and interpretation of group life, develops students’ critical reasoning and writing skills as well as their willingness to consider ideas that don’t already fit into their worldview. At the center of our students’ studies are questions concerning gender, race, social class, social change and current social issues. For working in today’s multiracial, multiethnic and multinational environment, a sociological perspective is invaluable.

Our sociology program provides excellent preparation for a career in social work, journalism, politics, public relations, business, public administration or any field that involves utilizing research and critical thinking skills and working with diverse groups.
