Our Sociology major examines human social behavior, focussing on its origins, organizations, institutions, and continuing evolution. You learn about a range of contemporary social challenges, consider their cultural, global, and political implications, and explore ways to solve them.

As a major, you benefit from hands-on learning opportunities that ensure a smooth transition into the career or graduate program of your choice. As part of our program, you complete both an internship and a semester-long Applied Sociology Experience (ASE), during which you study abroad, work in a social services agency, or conduct research.

You leave the program ready to pursue a career in social service or a graduate degree in a discipline like sociology, social work, law, economics, environmental studies or public health.

We also offer a minor in Sociology.
