Sociology

Sociology, the study of modern society and its institutions, deals with questions about economic relations, the distribution of power, and interrelations of religious systems and the structure of society. The discipline combines rigorous methods with a humanist’s perspective to develop comprehensive views of society. The Department of Sociology offers a wide variety of courses in social stratification, crime and delinquency, urbanization, and race relations. The department offers major and minor programs in sociology.
