The minor in sociology gives students the ability to understand the complexities of today’s society by examining human behavior and social actions. In examining how social structures (such as work, the family, religion, etc) help shape social rules, processes, and agency, students gain a better understanding of the complexity of today’s world—from poverty, to gender, to race, to organizational behavior, to politics and more. In studying social issues, students learn to use analytical and critical reasoning and apply sociological theories to explain a wide range of social phenomena.
