Sociology helps us to better understand our society and ourselves. It challenges us to question why we see things the way we do, and to inquire how people approach the same concerns from very different cultural perspectives.
Sociology provides students with the analytical concepts and research skills to study the structures of different societies around the world, stratifying each by gender, race, ethnicity, social class, sexuality and other social dimensions. Sociology is a minor that complements all majors and areas of study.
