Meet sociology student Almaza Farhat

You should major in sociology if:

  • You find human behavior interesting, especially in the context of culture and societies.
  • You’re a critical thinker with strong writing and communication skills. 
  • You have a hunger for information and thrive in research-type settings. 
  • You want to understand people and why they do what they do in families, groups, and in society. 

When you major in sociology, you’ll understand how culture and society form and evolve through groups of people joining and living together. Learn about the interactions between humans, as governed by social, religious, legal, economic, and even technological influences. 

Study these influences to learn how and why certain social behaviors and traditions are preserved while others rise and fall over time. Develop an in-depth understanding of how society impacts our views on areas ranging from the family unit, social issues, politics, deviance and criminology, sexuality, religion, and disabilities.
