Minor - Sociology

University Campus

Explore cutting-edge issues in sociology—including globalization, race, gender, urbanization, and medical and environmental matters.

A Sociology minor complements a major in any social science discipline, and is also useful for students in business, law enforcement, social work, education, philosophy and theology.
