The department of sociology has three main objectives for sociology majors. To a lesser extent, these objectives also apply to students who minor in sociology. The first of these is that students who successfully complete the sociology program will be able to apply a scientific approach to groups and institutions surrounding them, and, in addition, will be able to link this scientific approach to a humanistic understanding of pressing social problems. The second objective is to assist sociology majors to lay a broad and solid foundation for pursuing a career in a wide number of possible fields. Such a foundation enhances occupational flexibility required by a changing and unpredictable labor market. Finally, the department aims to foster critical thinking and aid students in developing their oral and written communications skills
