Sociology Courses

Sociology studies the social world and human social behavior. Sociologists use systematic methods, including survey research, statistical analysis of data, documents, and field research, to uncover social patterns and understand the way society works both on the level on individuals and in society as a whole. In a sociology class, students learn about social structure and institutions, social change, and the ways in which external social factors influence people’s lives. The study of sociology can help students enter a wide range of fields, such as investment banking, law, medicine, education, political activism, and the non-profit sector.
