Sociology is the scientific study of human behavior and society. Sociology students are introduced to the concepts, theories, and research methods used by sociological practitioners to understand a broad range of human activities: from those that connect humankind across the globe, to activities that sustain meaning in a small group. The sociology major prepares students for graduate study or for entry-level employment in the criminal justice system, helping professions, and business community, as well as in a variety of other professions. Also, the sociology major was developed in a manner that will allow students to complete concentrations in related areas such as psychology or criminal justice.
