The sociology curriculum is designed for the student preparing for a variety of careers, including but not limited to academic sociology (research and/or teaching), and social agency and social service work.

The sociology curriculum emphasizes the principles and application of sociological knowledge.

  • Learn knowledge of and appreciation for people who differ from themselves in cultural background, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, gender or other socially significant characteristics
  • Participate in community service that will both enhance their understanding of course materials and give them experience that will assist them in starting on a lifetime commitment to service
