PaCE Majors


Sociology is the study of social life and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. Award-winning faculty teach diverse and multifaceted coursework in the broad categories of health, illness and aging; marriage, families and gender; criminology and deviance; inequality, poverty and stratification; social psychology; and race and ethnic studies. Students examine the most pressing social problems in these areas, as well as how different social groups experience and perceive these issues. The communication and analytical skills developed by sociology majors, complemented by their sensitivity to and appreciation for diversity in many aspects of social relationships, provide our students with essential conceptual tools for navigating today's global marketplace and information society.
