Sociology Minor


Return to Programs Return to: Programs

Sociology is the study of human interactions and social groups. It concentrates on the aspects and trends of social life that are common to all cultures: social institutions, social problems, social movements, population problems, science, medicine, and social change. The sociologist studies all aspects of social behavior—in couples; families; laboratories and operating rooms; religious, professional, and political organizations; assembly lines; and national and international contexts. This information adds a perspective for understanding human ethical problems, developing policy alternatives, and mitigating emerging social problems.
