Sociology is the study of groups and social structures as drivers of human behavior. Students examine culture, economics, education, family, gender, industry, race, religion and social problems while developing analytical and enhanced critical thinking skills.                       

Within the major, special concentrations in Delinquent Youth Analysis and Global Diversity are available.                       

Students are encouraged to participate in LHU's Study Abroad Program, providing the opportunity to study different cultures overseas while fulfilling major requirements.                       


Students have the opportunity to complete internships in a variety of settings. Our students have interned in businesses, social service agencies and local and state government agencies providing them with both job and professional experience. Internships provide an opportunity to gain hands-on experience while applying concepts learned in class.
