Sociology involves the study of human behavior and the social lives of people, groups, and societies. If you are interested in learning more about social justice, working with diverse groups of people, and understanding how people interact and how society is organized in ways that can both support and suppress its own citizens, you may want to major in sociology.
Transfer student Aspen Degler, ’22, is earning a double major in criminology and sociology with a minor in forensics. Meredith’s StrongPoints® program and faculty mentors helped her determine her strengths and explore her career interests.
Inspired by a study abroad experience and with guidance from her faculty mentor, honors student Natalya Brown, ’21, chose to pursue three majors: Spanish, criminology, and sociology.
