Courses in sociology provide an understanding of society and of the relationship between the individual and society. Studies in sociology help to prepare you for graduate school and careers in the social services, law, human relations, criminal justice, government, education, and mass media. In order to effectively plan a course of study that will best meet your educational and career objectives, you will be assigned an advisor as soon as you declare a major in sociology.
Although a minor is not required, study in an outside area is recommended. Anthropology, computer science, economics, history, labor studies, political science, psychology, organizational leadership and supervision, and women’s studies support the major well.
