Sociologists seek to understand the complexities of social life by understanding people as situated within the larger contexts that shape their experiences and outcomes. The scope of our curriculum is quite broad, ranging from the study of individual behavior, interaction and organization to the analysis of global social processes. Our overall goal is to develop in students a deep, intellectual curiosity about how society works – both its organization and the consequences of that organization. Our major requires courses in sociology's key theoretical approaches and diverse methods of gathering and evaluating evidence, to inform students' understandings of themselves and their active engagement in the pursuit of social justice.
