Sociology Program

“Sociology is the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior.  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 traditions; from the divisions of race, gender and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture.”
