Sociology Minor

Enhance your major with a minor in Sociology. Sociology examines the workings of groups, organizations, and societies, and how people interact in these contexts – including ways that the social, cultural and economic backgrounds of people influence how they experience society and how individuals organize to shape society.  

By studying sociology, students will learn to critically assess social issues from multiple perspectives, skills that are not only an important part of being an active member of society, but that are highly valued in the workplace. Sociology can lead to careers in business (such as marketing, public relations, and human resources), human and social services, applied research and policy analysis, and more. The minor is also an excellent choice for pre-health majors desiring social perspectives on health and health care.

The sociology minor requires 18 credit hours of coursework.
