Sociology is the study of how humans have created the world and how they experience that world as outside of their powers. It blends history with economics and psychology and listens hard to things many may not want to hear. It reflects society back to itself from the widest angle possible so that individuals benefit from locating themselves in a mosaic of others.
Sociology appreciates irony, comedy and tragedy and uses them
What Does Sociology Teach Students?
All of our sociology professors earned doctorate degrees at top universities. They help the student cultivate their own powerful tools of explanation and understanding. At the end of the program, the student has conquered the hurdles of theory, research, family, industrialization, and change. He or she has mastered English and is poised to become fluent in another language. Many of our students go onto law schools, management, criminal justice, public relations and labor relations. Sociology is a favored subject for admission to a number of graduate programs including leadership studies, environmental studies, education, social psychology and business. Whether the student enters the labor market or continues their education, sociology is an effective launch pad.
