    If the scientific study of society sounds fascinating to you, you will love pursuing sociology at Ursuline. Here you'll read widely on the values, institutions, organizations and other social forces that characterize a society. You'll also concentrate on how these social forces shape a person’s life. Classes are discussion-based, writing intensive and thought-provoking. So you will expand your worldview while developing the communication and research skills employers are looking for.

    Sociology majors interested in criminal justice can pursue a concentration in the field, giving them more a in-depth focus into criminology.

    Careers

    If human relations are central to your career goals, sociology is a good fit for you. Often such jobs are available in public and private social agencies concerned with child care, the homeless, domestic violence, family services, public health, juvenile delinquency, criminal justice, drug abuse, mental health, social security, the elderly, minority affairs, labor management problems, or environmental improvement.
