Minor in Sociology

A minor in Sociology is a meaningful addition to any undergraduate degree. Sociology is a valuable, widely applicable, and innovative discipline that broadens students' understanding of social differences, social behaviors, and social change. Sociology minors will engage with contemporary social issues and gain sociological insights as they take classes on a variety of topics including gender and sexuality, racial discrimination, immigration, crime and deviance, health and medicine, popular culture, social movements, and the environment. 

The breadth of topics and dynamic courses enhance students' perspectives and understanding of their fields. Sociology offers a critical societal component to fields like Psychology, Anthropology, American Studies, Economics, Applied Behavioral Science, History, Political Science, and Global and International Studies, and professional degrees such as Journalism, Business, Medicine, or Education. Sociology encourages critical thinking, ethical behavior, and social responsibility, making it the perfect companion to many fields of study
