  • Sociology

    The minor in sociology offers diverse and multifaceted coursework in the broad categories of health, illness and aging; marriage, families and gender; criminology and deviance; inequality, poverty and stratification; social psychology; and race and ethnic studies. Students learn about the most pressing social problems in these areas, as well as how these issues are experienced and perceived by different social groups. The communication and analytical skills developed by students, complemented by sensitivity to and appreciation for diversity in many aspects of social relationships, provide a competitive edge in today’s global marketplace and information society.
