The Sociology major is designed to contribute to the overall intellectual and personal development of liberal arts students and provide them with backgrounds useful for careers in a variety of fields. Graduates are employed in community, business, and organizational settings, and attend graduate school in sociology, social work, law, and other fields. Practicum and internship courses give students an opportunity to gain experience in one or more field placement settings to complement classroom instruction.
Admission to the Program
Students wishing to major in Sociology should apply through the Department Chairperson prior to the junior year to facilitate planning a sequence of required and elective courses. Transfer students should apply to the Chairperson of the Department when they request admission to the University.
