Have you thought about how your social background shapes the kind of job you may have after graduation?
Have you wondered about how different your life would be if you had been born in an impoverished village?
Have you thought about why you buy the products that you buy?
About the cultural values our media presents and how that might shape society?

Sociology helps us gain a better understanding of ourselves and the social world. It helps us to see how our behavior is shaped by the groups to which we belong and the society in which we live.

Key courses in Sociology include:
Media and Society
Consumer Society
Race and Ethnic Relations
Crime and Society
