Bachelor of Arts in Sociology
Dr. Christie Boxer leads the Sociology program, which includes core courses that expose you to the scientific study of human society and develop your “sociological imagination,” and elective courses, such as Marriage & Family, Sex & Gender, and Race & Ethnicity, through which you will learn to understand and apply sociological concepts to the world outside of the classroom. Our courses teach you to analyze how social influences affect the behavior of, and interaction among, groups, organizations, institutions, and nations.
Beginning in your junior year, you will develop, conduct, and present an independent research project on a topic of your choice. Through our curriculum, sociology majors build the skillset most desired by employers, including: the ability to analyze data and communicate findings, how to understand complex situations and make practical solution recommendations, and how to work with and appreciate diversity. Our graduates are well-prepared for graduate school or employment in the many fields of social service and management.
