Reasons to be a Sociology Major
Learn and hang out with great people. We’re an energetic, socially conscious, real-world focused group.
We discuss pressing issues in society and examine everything social (nothing is too sacred, nothing is too profane, nothing is too mundane).
Gain skills to understand social interaction and the effects of society on individuals—apply knowledge to small groups and large social institutions (e.g., education, military, law, and religion).
Develop analytic tools to understand the world around you. It doesn’t hurt that these same skills are in high demand by employers!
