Sociology Degree at St. Mary’s

What is Sociology?

Sociologists aim to better understand the social lives of individuals, groups, institutions, communities and societies in all of their complexity and interconnectedness.

The Sociology student develops analytic, research, and communication skills, and learns how to ask and answer social research questions by using data. Our rigorous and academically challenging program builds a course foundation vital to a variety of fields and careers, and students are encouraged to complement their course experiences with professionalizing opportunities outside of the classroom, campus, or country.

Sociology at St. Mary’s University prepares students to contribute to solutions for some of the most complex and challenging social issues we experience in society today.
