Why Study Sociology?
Sociology is the scientific study of people in groups, their patterns and the results of their social interaction.
We will teach you how to study the social lives of people and their behavior, including observation and experimentation techniques. You will learn about the elements that form society and their influence on how people think, feel and act.
Whether your goal is to pursue an advanced degree or to work in law, social work, public health, education or criminal justice, sociology will help you make sense of the complex social relationships between individuals and society.
