What will I learn?
Do you have a passion for understanding problems deeply and working to improve the world?
Sociology will provide you with the lens to see and understand the world — including the interconnectedness of social institutions, inequality, and social change — with greater clarity. It challenges us to see each side of a problem and work to make a real difference.
Sociology also provides you with the tools to work effectively in our complex and changing social world — especially the ability to think and write critically. These skills are essential for understanding social behavior and navigating social networks in the workplace and beyond.
You will learn to analyze data, work collaboratively, and communicate complex ideas and findings to various audiences, using a range of platforms and methods, including:
- Individual and team-based presentations
- Scientific writing
- Social media
- Research reports and papers
- Surveys and questionnaires
- Focus groups
- Field observations
- One-on-one interviews
You will also work in diverse teams to deeply understand complex social problems in sectors such as business, science, government, entertainment, education, criminal justice, law, and health care.
