DEGREES, CERTIFICATES & AWARDS
Sociology is the study of the human social behavior and its origins, development, organizations, and institutions. The study of human behavior in social context assists students to learn who we are, to get closer to the truth about the social world, and to become aware of ways to achieve desired social ends.
Sociology and other liberal arts majors stress the ability to observe, organize and write clearly, as well as the development of skills in the analysis of data and in collaborating with others.
