Sociology, as the scientific study of human social life, helps you understand the world and your place in it. The sociology major offers a flexible set of courses that exposes students to the core of the discipline including theory, research methods, and social inequalities.
Learning to see often-invisible social forces and contexts makes sociology a great “second-major” for those studying criminal justice, business, education, or psychology. The sociology curriculum challenges students to gain skills relevant in many career trajectories including public health, applied research, and civic advocacy.
