Sociology is the study of social behavior and the socio-cultural settings in which it occurs. Sociology and Anthropology majors may choose to concentrate in either Sociology or Anthropology, and non-majors may minor in either discipline.
By studying Sociology, you will:
- examine the constructed nature of class, culture, ethnicity, gender, race, and sexual orientation
- learn how to conduct field research in local communities
- apply knowledge from research and theory to issues in the community
- develop critical insights into possibilities for social change
Sociology and Anthropology majors will complete 36 credits in courses related to their major, including a three-credit internship, and 120 credits overall.
Sociology minors will complete 18 credits, consisting of three core courses and three electives.
