The objective of a sociology minor is to explore and expand student knowledge of the discipline of sociology. Students will develop a greater understanding of various social and cultural issues around the world by examining historical and contemporary events, topics and issues in the field theoretically as well as empirically. In the variety of courses that they take, students will learn to analyze different societies and cultures from micro and macro levels and will also understand how these two intersect.
