Systematically and scientifically studying society and social behavior

Sociologists look beyond individual and unique events to the predictable broad patterns and regular occurrences of social life that influence individuals, especially gender, race/ethnicity, and social class/inequality. This is the sociological imagination. 

Courses in sociology at St. Scholatica focus on the forms of social organization and social processes in our own and other cultures, and on the theoretical approaches sociologists use to understand them.

Course Outcomes

By providing students with the tools to examine the social and cultural dimensions of society and to analyze social justice issues, courses in sociology help students think critically and act responsibly in a complex and rapidly changing world. That's why sociology courses are required for a number of majors and why many courses fulfill General Education Pathways requirements.
