The Department of Sociology offers both the Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in Sociology. The department also participates in an interdisciplinary program leading to the Ph.D. degree in Social Psychology. Courses offered by the Sociology Department examine the development of social classes, gender roles, racial prejudices, social analysis of politics, economic structure, the development of modern industrial society, religion, law, and a variety of other issues relevant to the study of society and social structure. These two topics are studied at two different levels: (1) theoretical understandings of major social issues through critical analysis; and (2) practical application of research skills through training in statistics and research methods. Sociology is an appropriate field of study for many students, including those minoring in anthropology, history, political science, economics, journalism, criminal justice, psychology, and business.
