Welcome to the Department of Sociology

Sociology is the scientific study of human social life. Sociologists seek to describe and explain patterns of human activity. Some sociologists study small groups, while others study organizations, institutions, or entire societies.

The findings from sociological research often challenge common-sense explanations.  Studying sociology will challenge your perceptions, enhance your critical thinking, communication, and research skills, and increase your graduate school and/or career opportunities.
