University rank #801 (QS) , FL,
The Sociology program has as its main objective to provide students with a strong component of a liberal arts education, training in analytical and statistical skills that are highly valued by potential employers.

About

A valuable undergraduate preparation for pursuing careers in such fields as journalism, politics, public relations, business or public administration and in other—fields that involve investigative or analytical skills or working with diverse groups; an excellent and comprehensive training program for students wishing to pursue graduate work in programs leading to academic positions, research expertise, or work in the field of applied sociology.

Sociology is both a liberal arts discipline and a profession.

One of the most notable features as people is that groups can be created: by establishing friendships, beginning families, starting jobs or businesses, creating committees, establishing neighborhoods, joining religious organizations, and building cities and nations. The kinds of groups that people create and belong to, and how those groups shape and influence our lives, are issues at the core of sociological study. In addition, the students study how these groups relate to one another; and they also study the structure of the society in which people live.

Studying sociology provides the student with broad understandings of the many ways in which groups and social structure impact our lives. The student also learns the nature of social science, and the uses and misuses of such in today's continually self-examining society.
