Sociology – Learning outcomes

The sociology major is designed to give liberal arts students concepts and tools for understanding human behavior in society. An undergraduate major in sociology prepares students for graduate or professional school. Those intending to enter the job market immediately after graduation will find that the analytical and data analysis skills they have gained as sociology majors will allow them to apply for entry-level research positions in both government and business.

Upon completion of the sociology major, students will be able to

  • demonstrate an understanding of sociology’s many connections and contributions to other disciplines,
  • demonstrate an understanding of the usefulness and limitations of the sociological imagination,
  • demonstrate the skills and articulate the knowledge gained while progressing through the major.
