Sociology is the study of human social behavior and how society organizes itself. As social beings, we must find ways to deal with others and make sense of the world that we create.
Sociology explores humanity’s diverse ways of interacting, and attempts to understand the institutions and social systems that we build.
The Bachelor of Arts in Sociology program is intended to help students become successful practitioners in professional contexts by improving their capacity to analyze, understand, and evaluate social phenomena, enhancing awareness of diversity, developing critical thinking skills, and improving writing and verbal skills.
Curriculum focuses on institutions, cultures, family patterns and relationships, gender and ethnic relations, mass media and value systems.
