Degree Awarded: B.S. in Sociology

Sociology is the scientific study of society. More specifically, it is the study of ways in which humans construct meanings and organize social relationships and activities. This discipline seeks to develop students' ability to observe and think critically about their own and other societies and to become more sensitive to behavioral and value differences among people (which powerfully shape attitudes and opinions). 


Sociology majors work in social services, human resources, health services and corrections. Many go on to graduate school to attain master degrees in law, business or education.
