About

 Sociology takes a broad and holistic view of the contexts in which individuals, groups, organizations, and institutions operate. The B.A. Sociology program at University of Alabama Huntsville emphasizes the development of both academic and applied skills that can be useful in a wide range of work settings. 

Overview

Sociology is a fascinating subject which explores patterns and trends in human behavior, society, and culture.

Sociologists bring scientific tools and perspectives to understand causes and consequences of contemporary social issues and problems, and analyze the impact of social policies on groups and organizations. 

The best sociological analyses combine a focus on important details with analyses about how the details relate to "the big picture." A B.A. in Sociology provides a broad foundation for further studies in law, social work, social policy, psychology, criminology, or public health. Analytical and social science research skills prepare students for careers in market research, human services, government, health care, and law.

Mission

At University of Alabama Huntsville we are committed to providing all students with the knowledge and skills that derive from a sociological perspective. Our curriculum encompasses core areas in the discipline with courses in sociological theory, social inequality, social institutions, social change and sociological methodology. 

Students may use the sociological perspective in pursuing further studies in the discipline, at work in diverse settings, and as thoughtful and involved members of their communities.

 The UAH Department of Sociology offers the B.A. with a major in sociology and a minor in Sociology.
