Sociology: Inequalities & Globalization

The science of society, inequality and globalization.

The society in which you live plays a significant role in life experiences—your level of education, your career path and income, your spouse or partner, and even your health and longevity.

In sociology, you will develop your “sociological imagination,” which will enable you to fully appreciate the ways in which social institutions influence our experiences, behaviors and opportunities. You will also explore topics like race, social class, gender, sexuality, globalization, crime, social mobility and the environment, and explore the role that poverty, inequality and globalization play in shaping individuals and communities.

Research is a key component of this field. As a sociology major, you will develop writing, public speaking, and statistical skills. You will also learn to design and conduct studies using various research tools and methods.
