The Sociology program offered by Roosevelt University focuses on human behavior and what it means to be human in constantly evolving social interactions that are part of personal identity, group behavior, and collective action.


The Sociology programme offered by Roosevelt University provides students with analytical skills, the ability to design research projects, and real insight into the human condition that can lead to successful careers in nonprofit organizations, social services, public services, education, government, sales, marketing, and administrative management. The BA in Sociology also prepares students for graduate study in sociology, as well as law, psychology, social work, and medicine.

Students acquire the "sociological imagination," a broad perspective of the relationship between society and the individual with a strong emphasis on social justice, gender, race, and contemporary urban and global problems. This emphasis leads to greater self-awareness, appreciation for diversity, understanding of local-global connections, and the knowledge and skills needed to work for a more socially just world. The department of sociology houses three institutes, the Policy Research Collaborative, the Mansfield Institute for Social Justice and Transformation, and the St. Clair Drake Center for African and African-American Studies, which provide students with opportunities for internships, transformational learning, and courses that take students into Chicago neighborhoods.


Students with a BA in Sociology are employed in nonprofit organizations, social and public services, education, government, sales, marketing, and administrative management.
