Sociology at Marymount University values diversity and will foster inclusive classrooms in which all students — independent of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, disability, or immigration status —contribute to classroom activities, and become engaged members of our university community. 


At Sociology at Marymount University in our curriculum and in our teaching, we challenge individual and systemic discrimination, and we evaluate the role that historical injustices continue to play in our communities. By promoting mutual recognition and respect across our differences in the classroom, we hope to better understand the world from multiple perspectives ourselves, and to cultivate that understanding in our students. Valuing our differences makes it possible for us to address the vexing social challenges we face today.


Sociology students develop critical reasoning, data collection and analysis skills, and foundational knowledge for working with diverse communities. These in-demand, transferable skills prepare students for a range of job settings working in government service, community development or urban planning. Students graduating with a Marymount sociology degree seek careers that will affect change on a global scale.
