The curriculum for the B.A. in sociology is designed to show students the character of human life and the impact of varying forms of social organization on human affairs. Students are introduced to the methods by which knowledge is developed, and examine the results of research on such diverse topics as
- the family
- popular culture
- the environment
The sociology major provides a foundation for careers in many professional fields, such as law, criminal justice, health, and social service, and for graduate training as a professional sociologist in government, business, community agencies, research organizations, or educational institutions.
