Sociology is the study of the relationship between humans and society. Students examine how economics, politics, religion, race, gender, family and the environment interact to shape people's lives. Students will learn to analyze social problems such as poverty, war and drugs to discover their causes and possible solutions. Possible courses include Race, Class and Ethnicity; Social Psychology, and Social Deviance.
Sociology prepares you for employment in social service, recreation, teaching, and preparation for pre-professional studies.
