Sociology Degree - The Study of People and Society

Fascinated by how human groups function? Then a sociology degree may be for you.  Sociology is the systematic study of the  development,  interaction, and behavior of organized human groups-from family units, to cities, to large political systems and nations. Today's sociologists use observation, surveys, statistical analysis, and controlled experiments to examine the many characteristics of societies, both large and small.

Sociology Degree specializations include:

  • Social Inequality (race, class and gender)
  • Political Sociology
  • Sociology of Education
  • Sociology of Religion
  • Sociology of the Family
  • Sociology of the Law
  • Deviance
  • Global Comparative Sociology
