Examining society.

Everyday, you interact with the people around you. Sociology is the study of those interactions.

Divisions within society, such as gender, religion, age, and socioeconomic status, affect our everyday life. Social forces including family, neighborhoods, and organizations shape our childhoods and influence our behavior.

Whether you’d like to make an impact on your community through social service, gain more insight for a career in business or industry, or pursue graduate work in sociology, anthropology, education, law, social work, criminology, or administration of justice, the study of sociology will give you the tools to better understand your world.
