Learning Outcomes for the Sociology major

By graduation, Sociology majors should be able to:

  • use sociological theory to explain how the experiences of individuals are shaped by their
    relationships with others and by the groups and institutions to which they belong.
  • employ ethical social science methods to obtain, analyze, and interpret data to test hypotheses,
    draw evidence-based conclusions, and present findings in written and oral form.
  • develop cultural competency by understanding how multiple dimensions of identity in
    societies, including race, gender, class, sexuality, and citizenship status, intersect with
    individuals’ lives and create human diversity and inequality.
  • use sociological knowledge and skills to engage with and impact the world around them.
