Sociology Major and Minor
The sociology major at Seaver College teaches our students to pursue the general study of human behavior in social settings. Students in the sociology degree program learn how to study social interaction scientifically and analytically. Sociology's subject matter is broad in scope, ranging from the study of institutions like family, religion, school, and government to social problems and social inequalities at both local and global levels.
Our sociology major exposes students to the writings and research of scholars with deep insight into the complexity of human interaction. This exposure helps them develop a trained eye and mind, while providing the tools to analyze social life with a degree of precision. Our students gain a deeper understanding of themselves and others in a variety of social environments.
Our sociology minor encourages students to examine a wide range of topics, social groups, and social interactions, as well as develop critical analytical skills that are useful for a broad range of professions. Sociology minors explore a variety of courses relevant to their interests.
