Minor in Sociology

For full course descriptions, use the online Academic Calendar.

Sociology encourages students to engage their "sociological imaginations" through a critical examination of society. It is a wide-ranging discipline, from the macro study of large social systems and institutions to the micro scrutiny of social interaction. Through a sociological lens, students explore the ways in which societies are created, maintained, and transformed with a focus on issues of power, social inequality, and social resistance.

Required courses:

  • SLGY 1101 - Introduction to Sociology

Note: Students should be aware registration in senior level SLGY courses may require successful completion of specific SLGY courses at the 1000, 2000, and/or 3000 level.
