Why study sociology?
Sociology cultivates engaging and creative learning experiences within and beyond the classroom that generate impactful research, innovation and social change.
Our curriculum addresses multiple and overlapping forms of exclusion and inequality with an eye toward building transformative communities and solutions. We seek to prepare our students with the knowledge and skills to pursue a wide range of careers and live as socially conscious global citizens in a diverse world.
