Bachelors of Science in Sociology (SOC)

Sociology studies the dynamics of human society through investigation of group structures, organizations and societies, and how people interact within these contexts. Sociology addresses some of the most challenging issues of our time from the divisions of race, gender and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture to the sociology of work to the sociology of sports.

It is a rapidly expanding field whose potential is increasingly tapped by those who craft policies and create programs. Sociologists understand social inequality, patterns of behavior, forces for social change and resistance, and how social systems work.

About the Program 

The sociology curriculum offers a broad education that emphasizes the social and cultural basis of human lived experiences, interactions, and motivation, along with the development of flexible analytical reasoning skills and tools for data management and analysis. This major prepares students for work within non-profit, governmental, and social service agencies, as well as within medicine, law, and business.
