Welcome to the Department of Sociology
“Sociology… because we investigate the institutions and social processes that shape human behavior, histories, and opportunities.”
Sociology is the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. Since all human behavior is social, few fields have such broad scope and relevance for research, theory, and the application of knowledge.
