About the Program

When you study sociology, you learn all about people, relationships, and why we behave the way we do. And your degree will open lots of doors. Our grads go on to careers in medicine, business, law, marketing, politics, communications, social services, and public relations.

You see, human relationships with each one another are—well, it's complicated. But we're here to help you sort it all out. Our program is designed to help you understand human behavior in the real world. How? For starters, we'll teach you the basics such as theory, abnormal psychology, and mental health. Then, we'll help you choose a concentration that suits your goals. In the end, you can have a social understanding that'll give you a leg up throughout your career.
