Sociology Major & Minor

Examining society.

Every day, you interact with the people around you. Sociology is the study of those interactions.

Whether you’d like to make an impact on your community through social service, gain more insight for a career in business or industry, or pursue graduate work in sociology, anthropology, education, law, social work, criminology, or administration of justice, the study of sociology will give you the tools to better understand your world.


"The major helped me develop and mold my passions and sort of openend up a world of new ideas and opportunities for my career"
- Paris Mercier, '20
“I have gained amazing communication skills, like my ability to write and think critically in any setting. The theoretical background I have gained has helped me to think differently about the world around me.”
- Karlie Dolan, '20
