Sociology

Community Connection

Sociology is the study of the human individual and human groups. It offers a broad foundation for understanding human behavior and encourages the development of critical thinking. Sociologists often collect survey information and perform research for lawmakers, administrators, and educators, to provide advice on drug treatment programs, demographics, zoning changes, and aid to the poor.

Both undergraduates and graduate students have the opportunity to work with internationally prominent teachers and researchers. Our programs are carefully designed to provide extensive opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning experiences both in classroom settings and through participation on faculty members' research projects.
