Sociology (SOC)

Career Options & Highlights

Sociology examines the social and cultural bases that impact human behavior, interaction, and life chances. Courses in sociology enable students to see their own contexts, their connections to social structures and natural environments, and provide important tools for thinking critically about our world. The study of sociology facilitates careers in public policy, law, politics, social services, and international work. An advanced education in sociology can also lead to teaching at the high school, college, and graduate levels. Sociologists are involved, as well, in research at the local, state, and federal levels and in both private and public sector industry. Finally, many sociologists apply their education to working with local and global communities to support social justice issues.

Highlights
- Practical courses valuable to all students and well-trained and interesting faculty.
