Sociology is the scientific study of human societies and social interaction. Sociologists study how people’s thoughts, feelings, and actions are influenced by broader social structures and processes, such as labor markets, government policies, family relationships, culture, and socialization.


These structures and processes are characterized by patterns of social inequality, as illustrated by gender differences in wages, ethnic differences in educational opportunities, and socioeconomic class differences in socialization experiences. In turn, sociologists focus on patterns of inequality and how these patterns shape people’s outlooks, behaviors, and everyday interactions.

A bachelor’s degree in sociology provides graduates with a set of skills in high demand by many of today’s employers. These include: design and implementation of research projects; qualitative and quantitative data gathering and analysis; written and oral communication; awareness and understanding of diversity from local to global; research and program evaluation; and application of theory to help alleviate social problems. Common career opportunities for the sociology B.A. graduate include but are not limited to: social services, community development, corrections, marketing and advertising, university admissions, educational counseling, human resources, health services, public relations, government agencies, and teaching (with required certifications).
