Bet you didn’t know there was a hidden social fabric in our everyday lives. Well, there is. And if you’re curious to know how it all works, then we suggest you pursue a degree in sociology. Like other social sciences, sociology is often misunderstood. But if you like the sound of being a private investigator into the hidden aspects of the human condition, sociology is where you want to look.
Simply put, sociology seeks to uncover explanations for “why people do what they do.” In their search for knowledge, sociologists examine issues of race, gender, age, occupation, religion, family, and all other characteristics of human beings. There’s no limit to human collective behavior that can’t be studied by sociology students and researchers.

Before signing up for classes, you’ll want to meet with an academic advisor. Together, you’ll lay out a program and career path that suits you best. This step is essential to your academic success.
Advising for the Sociology program is available through the Cultural Science department. You can also contact Academic Advisement for general advising. Both will help you determine the exact courses you need to get the education you’re looking for.
