Minor in Sociology
The 18-credit minor in Sociology provides students with an understanding of the forces that make social order possible and those that direct social changes and progress. Students become knowledgeable about major social problems that affect the quality of life such as poverty, crime, urban blight, environmental destruction, discrimination, and family disintegration.
Correspondingly, students will be able to critically address their complex causes and efforts at ameliorating them. In addition, students will become familiar with the theories and research studies used to assess the social landscape, exploring how societies work, the way different cultures meet the universal needs of mankind, and related social policies for improving social life.
