Department of Sociology
Welcome to Sociology. Sociology is a fascinating and widely applicable field which teaches how to think about the way people create, maintain and are affected by social forces.

Critical thinking, problem-solving, written communication, oral communication and interpersonal skills are all cultivated by studying sociology.  We are a department that is excited about the opportunities that sociology has for students and welcome you to explore the world through a sociological perspective.

We are pleased to introduce you to our department. Please take the time to browse our website and learn about us!
