Sociology is the study of how society shapes people and how people 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.
Graduates with a bachelor of science in sociology pursue careers in a range of industries, excelling in jobs that demand deep knowledge of research, human behavior, intercultural communication and community relations.
