Welcome

The Department of Sociology emphasizes research, interpretation, and analysis.

Sociology has interests in human relationships and experience, contemporary family life and family policies, ethnic diversity and race relations, poverty and social stratification, social justice, and community organization and encourages hands-on learning through data collection and analysis, field placements, internships, and service-learning projects.

Students may major or minor in sociology.
