The Sociology Program

Sociology majors graduate with a wide range of knowledge and skills that serve them well in a variety of possible careers. All sociology majors gain valuable skills in our rigorous theory and research methods course sequence, which emphasizes both quantitative and qualitative approaches. This depth of training makes sociology majors outstanding candidates for careers in teaching, business, advocacy, public service and administration, law, medicine, journalism, international development and many other professions. In addition, sociology majors regularly pursue graduate study in sociology, social work, education, media studies, public health, public policy, law, business and urban/regional planning. Optional course concentrations within the major provide the opportunity for students to target careers related to global issues; medicine and public health; law and criminal justice; and social/policy change. Sociology minors and those who take sociology courses as part of their exploration of the liberal arts benefit from the wide range of topics covered in our courses.
