Why This Program?

The sociology minor program is designed to develop basic comprehension of the social lives of individuals, groups, culture and major social institutions. Sociology is the scientific study of society and as such this program curriculum covers both the impact of individuals on society and of society on individual.

For those most interested in the practical application of sociology, our interdisciplinary minor in social research is also available. This minor prepares interested students to participate actively and responsibly as researchers in their local communities, for business and governmental agencies, and for national and international organizations.
