About

The Sociology, Environmental Sociology Concentration at Colorado State University takes sociology’s long established disciplinary orientation to the world and applies it to the study of nature-society relations.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Sociology is about people, institutions, and behaviors. It is about social interactions and social structures. The task of the sociologist, therefore, is to stand back from common sense views of the world and understand the structure and processes of a society as a whole, including global societies. 

Environmental sociology is about translating these tasks into analysis and action around environmental issues. Some of the pressing contemporary environmental issues to which environmental sociology can be applied are: transboundary pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, and water and soil degradation. 

Students of this Sociology, Environmental Sociology Concentration at Colorado State University will find the concentration helpful in preparing them for a growing number of jobs that have a focus in environmentally related matters.

Potential Occupations

Careers are exceptionally varied. Participating in internships and cooperative education opportunities is highly recommended to enhance practical training and development. Sociology graduates apply their education to a large variety of occupations in the non-profit, private, and public sectors. 

Because Sociology graduates possess a number of transferable communication, analytical, and people skills, they find positions in government, industry, and academia. Many employers appreciate liberal arts majors for their multiple skills and their ability to adapt to a variety of tasks and work environments. Graduates who go on to advanced studies can pursue careers in sociology or attain advanced positions with the possibility of rising to top professional levels.
