Overview

Sociology students learn to employ what C. Wright Mills called the Sociological Imagination – the ability to see the connection between the individual and society, biography and history, self and world – to understand everything from two people interacting on the Internet, to large groups mobilizing to protest pollution or civil rights violations, to social institutions like the government or our healthcare system.
