Society and our place in it can be understood by studying the connections between large trends and individual lives.

Sociology offers a unique way of seeing the world. It illuminates the relationships between personal biography and larger history, the place of the self in society, and the hidden structures shaping our world. As an inherently interdisciplinary field, sociology complements work in anthropology, history, psychology, politics, and gender studies. Critical analysis of the social world often resonates for arts students, as well. Equipped with strong conceptual and practical knowledge, sociology students were prepared to contribute to the debates that shape the present and the future.
