If you’re always wondering “Why?” and “How?” when it comes to issues like social inequality, race, or crime, put your curiosity to work in the College of Social Sciences’ Department of Sociology. Sociology is about you and the world you live in—you’ll study people and their activities, their work, their games, relationships, behaviors, beliefs, organizations, problems, and dreams. Through hands-on experience, you’ll hone skills in social research and statistical analysis—skills that can prepare you for a career in government, industry, or social services.
