Program Overview

In the sociology minor program, you’ll understand how the many factors that influence behaviors determine social relationships and organization, and learn how various economic and political forces affect the creation of social legislation and the availability of resources.

You will choose from a variety of elective courses that enable you to focus the minor on topics that not only align with your academic interests and career goals, but also broaden your perspective in your chosen field. Courses in family dynamics, gender, race, immigration and deviance complement such majors as anthropology and criminal justice. The ability to examine broader social trends and apply observations in everyday interactions is a crucial skill for social workers, members of law enforcement and educators at all levels.
