Department of Sociology

Sociology is the branch of the social sciences that examines the causes and consequences of group behavior. Sociologists focus their research on social interaction and institutions to explain why people behave the way they do.
In our courses, sociology students explore many different aspects of society, such as:
  • Interpersonal communication
  • Race relations
  • Class inequality
  • Population dynamics
  • Gender relations
  • Social movements
  • The family
