Sociology promotes the understanding of society and how it works. It also examines how society affects individuals and how individuals affect society. Major topics include culture, socialization, social problems, and social change(SOC-1A).
Because of the broad scope of subject matter, sociology is excellent preparation for a wide range of career paths, including teaching, journalism, law, business, communications, nonprofit management, corrections/law enforcement, social work, counseling, urban planning, public service, and politics.
