Bachelor of Science in Sociology

Sociology is the study of human behaviors and interactions within group contexts. The study of sociology provides a framework for examining complex social problems including poverty, deviant behavior, and substance abuse. Courses in sociology also address the significance of social institutions such as family, religion, government, and mass media.

While majoring in sociology at UHD, students will:

  • • Learn how societies create opportunities and perpetuate inequalities in economics, education, gender, ethnicity, and race relations.
  • • Study ways in which communities develop in relation to culture, religion, and kinship.
  • • Learn about the connections of social life and the emergence of a global cultural system


UHD Sociology majors learn skills in analysis, organization, research, and communication, which will serve as a foundation for graduate studies or a variety of occupations. Some examples of sectors served by a sociology degree include:

  • • Counseling and Human Services
  • • Law Enforcement and Corrections
  • • Education
  • • Market Research
  • • Public administration
