The sociology curriculum seeks to broaden and deepen the understanding of social organization and social change in the United States and globally. As a means to this end, it provides a background in perspectives and methods useful in examining the factual basis of assertions about the social world, and helps us understand both our immediately experienced social reality and more encompassing social phenomena.
An undergraduate degree in sociology offers an excellent foundation for a critically informed understanding of and engagement with contemporary social issues, as well as for graduate-level preparation for careers in journalism, law, politics, health care, social planning, social services and other professions that must take into account social organization and social relations.
A sociology major or minor combines readily with racial, ethnic, area and women's studies, as well as with other interdisciplinary social sciences.
