The study of sociology provides students with valuable information and techniques that are applicable many professional careers. Students interested in careers in primary and secondary education, law, social work, health care, business, marketing, public service, and higher education find considerable value in the sociological perspective. The courses offered attempt to meet the varied needs of the student body.

Hence, the three major goals of sociology are:

  1. To provide the student with an understanding of the sociological perspective and its universal application to human behavior;

  3. To expose the student to the diverse orientations within the discipline of sociology.
