Sociology is concerned with understanding human societies. As a discipline, sociology goes beyond common sense and popular wisdom to expose our biases and to develop a less simplistic view of the world we usually take for granted. As a major, sociology provides a foundation for careers in a variety of public and private areas, especially in the fields of community and service organization. The sociology program provides a balance between theoretical and applied interests of students and provides a number of opportunities for individualized independent work and advanced research courses. The curriculum is designed to meet not only the needs of students electing to major in the discipline, but also those of students in career oriented programs such as education, social work, business administration, and the health professions. Students who wish to major or minor in Sociology should speak with a member of the Sociology faculty for advisement.
