Overview

Why do people make the choices they make? How do groups form? Why are you the way you are? Gain an understanding of these major life questions with a degree in sociology.

In this program, you’ll learn how to think critically about social inequality, racial and ethnic conflict, law and justice, social and political movements, family, gender and sexuality, and many other social issues. This program helps you go beyond your personal experiences to broaden your perspective on social life and develop a deep understanding of important trends in modern society.

A degree in sociology can open doors to careers in many fields. You will gain skills to better interact with colleagues, conduct research or pursue professional opportunities in social services, sales and marketing, management, law, human resources and teaching.
