Sociology: A Foundation for your Future
Our students develop insights about the effects of social structures on individual
lives, communities and the broader society, learning to use evidence-based practices to
address complex social issues. We emphasize a social justice perspective through
research and teaching with a focus on economic inequality, gender, race/ethnicity
and aging, as well as social institutions such as the family, education and work.
“The difficulty, in sociology, is to manage to think in a completely astonished and
disconcerted way about things you thought you had always understood.”- Pierre Bourdieu
