What We Do

“The fascination of sociology lies in the fact that its perspective makes us see in a new light the very world in which we have lived all our lives.” – Peter Berger

Our students develop and apply knowledge, skills, conceptual understanding and values to solve real-world problems.

Our Programs of Study

The Department of Sociology administers programs in the following areas:

  • Sociology
  • Justice Studies
  • Gerontology

Because of considerable overlap in course requirements across the sociology, justice studies and gerontology curricula, many students are able to pursue a double major or combine a major in one program with a minor in another.​​
