sociology

Overview

 

Sociology is concerned with human interaction, the social nature of human beings, and human coexistence among varying kinds of groups. The sociology program offers an integrated approach to the study of human social behavior. Through the concepts of self and roles, social institutions, the community, family, and social and cultural heritage, the group behavior of humans is studied. Students obtain a solid grounding in theory as well as skill-based education from experiential learning opportunities.

 

 

Career Preparation

 

Persons with a sociology background can find employment in many sectors, including business, agricultural organizations, labor relations, criminal justice, human services, and social work. Many students enter graduate school. Recent graduates have entered law school and master degree programs in family counseling and sociology. No one "professional title" explains the job of a well-prepared sociology graduate, since employment opportunities exist within a multitude of fields.
