Sociology provides valuable insights into social factors that affect how institutions and organizations operate, to include race, ethnicity, gender, age, education, and social class.

It is common for sociology majors to find employment in the nonprofit sector as well as community and social movement organizations.

In addition to the course offerings, departmental majors are encouraged to work in community, social and/or correctional agencies where they can apply classroom knowledge to real problems.

Students should have math skills equivalent to MATH 100 or higher before enrolling in BSCI 274.
