The study of Sociology gives students the ability to observe human behavior, analyze data, and collaborate with others to achieve desired social change. Students study thematic areas: crime and deviance, diversity and inequality, socialization and interaction, globalization and social change. The Sociology major is designed to illustrate the sociological perspective, helping students to develop skills in critical thinking and in using the tools of sociology.
The mission of the Sociology Department is to provide our students with the theoretical and substantive knowledge to participate as skilled professionals within the institutions and organizations that shape our region.
