Sociology is the study of social life, such as the social causes and consequences of human behavior. It investigates the structure of groups, organizations, and societies, as well as their formation, development, and interactions.

The Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology is designed to familiarize the student with the structure and functioning of society, to develop greater understanding and appreciation of diverse cultural groups, to stimulate constructive analysis of sociological patterns, to encourage further research on human social behavior, and to prepare students for productive careers in a wide variety of occupations and professions.

Sociology is a popular major for students planning futures in such professions as law, business, education, architecture, medicine, social work, and public administration. Various occupations and professions are available at the local, state and national levels to the person who majors in sociology. While many sociologists hold positions in social service and educational fields, an increasing number hold a wide variety of jobs in such sectors as business, the health professions, the criminal justice system, and in government. Sociologists also teach at the community college, college, and university levels, as well as increasingly at high school levels across the nation.
