Sociology is the study of society and culture and seeks to explore how societies develop. Sociology majors find employment opportunities in a wide variety of areas including government, business, law, politics, social service, and education. Opportunities also exist at the managerial level in county, state, and federal agencies and with research centers. Students are also prepared to pursue graduate coursework in law, public policy, or political science.
The Sociology program is a part of the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice which provides students with a foundation in the theory and methods used to understand society, culture, or crime.
