Studying sociology is a journey of understanding how societies work and how people, institutions and groups behave and interact within them.
Using the rigor of sociology theory and methods, sociology majors or minors study how societies function and the ways people influence each other through institutions, organizations and groups.
On this academic journey, you will explore topics such as urban life, family relations, race and ethnicity, social class, social and religious movements, aging and gender roles.
You’ll observe and analyze these topics from two vantage points: the social sciences and the humanities, with both views grounded in social theory and research.
Sociology can be combined with majors in Public Policy Analysis and Gender & Women’s Studies.
