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. The practice of becoming a sociology student will challenge your thinking and increase your skills. Please consider joining us for the surprising study of social life!
