Sociology is the scientific study of individuals and groups within society.

The Department of Sociology is home to student-centered faculty who bring diverse research interests into the classroom. Students have the opportunity to take courses from content areas of race and social class, gender and sexuality, criminology and social deviance, aging and dementia, popular culture, social movements, sustainability, and the environment. Sociology remains essential to a liberal arts education by preparing students to think critically about the world around them while applying practical skills in research methods and data analysis.
