Sociology Students in the AIRC

The minor in Sociology gives students the skills to study the way humans interact with others from a historical and modern contexts.

Sociology undertakes a study of the complex ways in which humans interact with each other in large and small groups. We do so using something called the sociological lens — a technique that allows us to uncover the hidden social factors that influence behavior.

Sociology’s Professional strengths include developing an improved capacity to learn new information, improving writing and speaking skills and becoming more statistically literate. These skills are in high demand across all fields including law, medicine, law enforcement, human resources, education, non-profit organizations, government jobs, data analysis and political organizing.
