What is Sociology?

The study of sociology gives the student an understanding and appreciation of the nature of society, social institutions, and people as social beings and creators of culture.

Through systematic investigation and analysis, students gain knowledge and insight into the complex relatinships found in the modern world. Students are then better prepared to make intelligent judgments in their own lives and to contribute more effectively to society and the world.

Sociology as a Foundation

Sociology provides a background for pursuing further study in sociology, business, law, social work, social services, counseling, communications and other related areas.

Where are Sociology Majors Employed?

Sociology prepares students for employment in the public and private sectors in such areas as:

  • management
  • public relations
  • human resources
  • applied research
  • public policy
  • administration
  • teaching

Saint Anselm College's program in sociology allows students to focus on general sociology or social work.
