Sociology, BA

The Sociology major provides an overview of dynamic social forces that impact us every day, including population density and behavior, immigration, social inequality, globalization, and cultural differences. Individual courses address the workings of many core societal institutions: the workplace, the family, the health care and criminal justice systems, and the media. The curriculum can help focus your interests, identify your area of specialization, gain experience in a related work environment, and ultimately select a career path.

In addition to pursuing advanced study in master’s and doctoral-level programs, sociology graduates have gone on to work as applied researchers, teachers, and counselors in human service, health care, and criminal justice settings.
