Sociology is the study of human social life, groups and societies. The sociologists' job is to uncover hidden realities. They systematically study various social situations to understand and explain them; such as patterns and activity, social structures, culturla beliefs and values in different societies. Sociology is a beneficial discipline for anyone wanting to work with groups and people.
We believe that the undergraduate training we provide ranks among the best. As part of a small school, we have a tradition of close collaboration between faculty and students.
Through our Internship program we maintain relationships with several local institutions and agencies — a unique feature that offers students the opportunity to work with professionals in the field, in an area that interests them. In addition to academic learning, students get experience, develop professional contacts and come to understand their chosen field. Our graduates are prepared for a variety of professions, and a high percentage have jobs when they graduate.
We have lots of plans for developing our program in the future. Be sure to drop by and talk with us, about your plans or about our plans. Every other Thursday during the Fall and Spring semesters we meet with other Sociologists or other Criminal Justice professionals. Visitors are welcome.
Eddie Lynton, assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice, will speak about how digital mediums can function as places for terror or platforms for peace at the Advanced Research Workshop in Turkey this May.
