The Sociology curriculum emphasizes thoughtful examination of social issues. The purpose of exploring society through a variety of classes is to increase students’ social awareness and the ability to employ a sociological perspective to interpret social behavior.
Our graduates are equipped with a set of core courses in theory, methods, statistics, and data analysis that give them the opportunity to explore a research question from the beginning conceptualization to the presentation of findings about their project. This research is completed in relatively small classes with the same professor assisting them over a two-semester period. What this experience means is that students gain critical thinking and analytical skills that prepare them for careers in a broad range of fields. By combining the core courses with their specific interests in courses concentrated around areas such as Crime, Law & Deviance; Diversity & Social Inequality; Mass Culture & Collective Behavior; and/or Medical Sociology, a graduate of our program is well-prepared for graduate school as long as his/her grades and GREs are competitive. Graduates are also well-prepared for careers in positions or fields such as research analyst, behavioral analyst, law enforcement, corrections, diversity training specialist, counselor, marketing research, advertising, public relations, human resources, child welfare, victim advocacy, event planner, and environmentalist to name a few.
