The sociology program includes a wide range of courses suitable for majors or minors in sociology, and for students who would benefit from an understanding of human social behavior. The core of the major emphasizes both theory and methodology, particularly as they may be applied to the study of human interaction, social institutions or analysis of contemporary social problems.
The sociology program offers majors in general sociology and sociology in liberal arts.
The sociology minor complements many majors well. Almost any career that requires understanding society, human diversity or the methods by which we study society could benefit from coursework in sociology. The wide array of sociology course offerings also makes excellent general electives, regardless of your major.
