Sociology is the study of how groups interact within society. A sociology minor can provide students with a sophisticated understanding of social theory and problems as well as advanced skills in conducting research. The minor can prepare students for professions in education, human services, private industry, nonprofit organizations, and government. The minor is a logical addition for Social Work, Criminal Justice and Psychology majors.
