What are the constraints of your culture? Wouldn’t you like to know? Wouldn’t you like to break them?
Sociology equips students with the tools to critically examine the social world around them. Through our courses, students will examine institutions and policies that shape opportunities as well as cultures, social norms, and social contexts that influence identity and behavior. Focusing on issues ranging from race, gender, immigration, culture, and religion, students are encouraged to critically engage with contemporary social challenges at both local and global scales.
