The study of sociology enables one to understand human behavior better in that most human interaction is determined by culture and the social groups to which one belongs. The study of sociology gives students a rich perspective on American culture in general, which can be invaluable in a time of rapid social and technological change. The aim of the major in sociology is to provide students with a broad foundation for a variety of career options, including marketing research, sales, advertising, public relations, civil and government service, labor and industrial relations, criminal justice, and social service.
