Sociology is the scientific study of society. It begins with the premise that individuals are deeply affected by the social structures, institutions, and cultural milieus surrounding them. This Sociology degree is offered by Northwestern University.


Sociology provides students with the conceptual tools to understand how various features of society, including inequalities based on race, class, or gender, affect its members. In so doing, sociology also provides conceptual tools that can be used to foster social change and the empowerment of historically marginalized groups.


The major in Sociology at Northeastern University seeks to prepare students for careers in public or private service, including such fields as law, teaching, social work, administration or management, and research.
