Build a better world.

Sociology majors ask probing questions about the causes and consequences of human behavior, social problems, and social change, as they learn how human beings live together.

Careers include human relations and counseling, social and human services, journalism, education, law and politics, public policy, and the ministry.

The Curriculum

The foundation of the discipline of sociology rests upon two fields: research methods and social theory. Courses in research method provide the knowledge and skills necessary to design ethical and rigorous studies that involve the collection and analysis of empirical evidence. Other courses provide sociological perspectives that inform the selection of research methods for a particular project and guide the analysis of collected data.

The Professors
