Sociology (BS)

Sociology (BS)

Sociology is the study of how society shapes us and how we shape society. From the development of the self to the functioning of large institutions like religion and higher education, from experiences of immigrants in a new country to development and dissemination of movies and music, sociologists seek ways to explain complex and fascinating links between individuals and groups, organizations, communities, and societies in which we live. The Department of Sociology creates and disseminates sociological knowledge and has a strong commitment to undergraduate education.
