The Sociology program of Southwest Minnesota State University provides students with a broad sociological perspective and encourages development of a “sociological imagination.”.


In the Sociology program of Southwest Minnesota State University students will gain an understanding of how social forces influence individual behavior and how interacting individuals, groups, and organizations affect society and social change.

Sociologists address the most challenging issues of our time. Since all human behavior is social, the subject of sociology ranges from the intimate family to the hostile mob, from the divisions of race, gender and social class, street crime and delinquency, to the problems of war and peace.

Criminal justice and women’s studies minors complement the sociology major. Sociology, criminal justice, and women’s studies minors also complement other major areas of study such as justice administration, political science, social work, and business.


Sociology graduates find exciting careers in social service agencies, businesses, and local, state, and national government. A sociology major is excellent preparation for law school and other professional and graduate programs. Sociology, criminal justice, and women’s studies minors enhance preparation for graduate school in many disciplines as well as preparation for careers in any field that requires an understanding of people and society.
