Sociology and social justice give you access to core issues and to fundamental truths about society and culture and the tools for understanding these issues. Our faculty emphasize statistics, field research methods, and sociological concepts in their classes every day. Expect to accompany faculty to professional meetings and participate in student panels and learn from others as they present their research projects and findings.
We also value learning from travel-based study and have taken students to places like the rain forests of Mexico and Australia, the temple cities of Japan, and the native-run islands of New Zealand. We emphasize learning about the local cultures and institutions through observations, interpretation, and writing.
