Sociology

Visit Department Website

The sociology department's program contributes to a general education in the arts and sciences by surveying sociology's basic modes of thought and strategies of inquiry. A vast amount of public and private decision-making in contemporary society is based on social research such as public policy evaluation; media, opinion, and marketing surveys; census studies; and population analyses. To cope with life in a modern society and to make independent judgments, an educated citizen should have a critical understanding of what social science research does to, for, and about him or her. Toward that end, many of the department's courses provide hands-on experience with modern social research procedures.
