The minor in sociology provides students with an understanding of the theory, practice and policy underlying issues of social change, inequality and diversity.
The minor program in sociology, offered by the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, provides students with an understanding of the theory, practice and policy underlying issues of social change, inequality and diversity. These issues are approached from multiple perspectives, including race or ethnicity, gender, economic position, age, geographic location and position in the global political economy.
The student minoring in sociology learns how it enhances one's understanding of social realities and institutions at local, national and international levels and how sociology contributes to the other social sciences and to the humanities.
Students gain a basic understanding of the assumptions underlying the discipline of sociology and develop the research skills necessary for analysis of complex social issues. These objectives are met by offering a flexible program and by providing the student with individual and group experiences in working with faculty members on concrete intellectual and policy issues.
