Sociology provides a perspective of our world
like no other discipline. Here, at USF, students will learn how to
think critically about social problems and better understand the
world around them. Courses will be designed around trying to answer
some of society's most pressing questions, such as: Why does
poverty exist? What can be done about it? Does everyone have the
opportunity to succeed? And what role should society play to ensure
that everyone has a chance at a better life?
Sociology majors at USF will also be prepared to further their
education in such advanced degrees as law, history, political
science, and sociology. Many sociology grads who choose not to get
an advanced graduate degree have served prominent roles in the
local, state, and national government. The critical thinking and
broad skills offered with a sociology major prepare individuals for
a wide range of disciplines and jobs. Interested students should
stop by 411 Jorden for more information.
