Sociology is the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. Sociology majors receive a strong grounding in traditional and contemporary social theory, methods of conducting social research, and techniques of analyzing social data.

Recent graduates of the Sociology Department have applied their training to enter prestigious graduate schools or to obtain entry-level management and administrative positions with such varied organizations as large and small businesses, criminal justice agencies, child welfare organizations, local welfare and mental health departments, the criminal courts, and social service agencies.
