Sociology (Minor)


Sociology is the scientific study of human behavior in the social environment. Sociologists investigate how people interact within a variety of institutional contexts, such as the criminal justice system, the family, the labor force, education, medicine and health care, business, and nonprofit organizations. This minor is designed to help students understand diversity and stratification in the social world, which will improve the career opportunities of students majoring in areas that deal with people, including health sciences, education, counseling, criminal justice, human resources, business, management, and social work.
