Courses in the Sociology Program integrate theory and application into a broad foundation of both scientific and humanistic knowledge about humans in society. All students complete an internship and an original empirical senior thesis as part of their major requirements. Emphasis is placed on the development of critical thinking skills and the application of values to the content of the sociology curriculum. The knowledge and skills gained during the program are crucial to successful performance in graduate school and are also highly valued by a wide variety of potential employers who hire sociology majors directly after graduation.
