Sociologists investigate the structure of groups, organizations, and societies, and how people interact within these contexts. Since all human behavior is social, the subject matter of sociology ranges from the intimate family to the hostile mob; from organized crime to religious cults; from the divisions of race, gender, and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture (21st Century Careers with an Undergraduate Degree in Sociology, 2014, https://www.asanet.org/about/what-sociology).


Developing a sociological imagination allows people to see bigger pictures, make new connections, and consider new perspectives on many issues—valuable tools and critical thinking skills used for problem solving in every career field. Get a head start in your field by taking Introduction to Sociology (SOC200), offered every semester, and Social Problems (SOC210), offered in the fall and spring semesters.
