Students studying sociology analyze social and cultural issues on both the macro- and micro-levels, and explore relationships between the individual and society.

Coursework includes, but is not limited to, studies of religion, family and gender, as well as sociological theory, the environment and society; social physchology; animals and human society; sociology of wealth and power; sociology of sport; and criminology.

The Sociology major and minor are associated with the Department of Sociology. A major requires ten courses and a minor requires six. Additional information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
