Bachelor's Degree in Sociology
Courses in sociology and anthropology acquaint the student with a scientific approach to the study of social institutions and human relationships. Changing family roles, development of occupational careers, dynamics of behavior in bureaucracies, the nature of deviant, criminal and delinquent behavior and the consequences of an aging population are examples of the wide scope and contemporary relevance of sociology. This department offers a strong emphasis on research and data analysis with direct relevance for employment as well as graduate school.
The department offers several areas of knowledge and skill development. Some students select a double major, linking sociology with related disciplines such as business, psychology, political science, criminal justice, or communications.
