Sociology Minor

Sociology is the analytical study of the development, structure, and function of human groups and societies. It is concerned with the scientific understanding of human behavior as it relates to and is a consequence of interaction within and between groups.

By studying behavior, sociologists are positioned to provide valuable insights on motivations as well as social factors that impact the way businesses, nonprofits, and governmental organizations operate.

Sociology minors study people and the roles they play in society. Knowledge of sociology helps students better understand why people behave the way they do, making it a beneficial minor to anyone who wishes to work with diverse populations.
