Sociology appeals to those students whose interests are broad and unspecialized. At both undergraduate and graduate levels, students study history, politics, statistics, mathematics, race relations, demography, psychology, language, and many other topics. A sociology student becomes a member of an intellectual community in which all these interests are represented. The primary purpose of the major in Sociology is to enhance the student's capacity for critical analysis and understanding of social phenomena. It is intended, at the same time, to serve as preparation for careers in high school or junior college teaching, social work, architecture and urban planning, law, public health, and government service, among others. It also provides training for advanced graduate work in sociology and social psychology. There are various options under the sociology majors including Criminal Justice, Social Work and General Sociology.
