Sociology studies human behavior, particularly in an urban or industrial social setting. Our courses give you a basis to recognize and predict human actions while also being aware of your influence on society. We focus on a number of topics, including current social problems, race, and ethnic relations, sex, gender, and gender identity, family and relationships, social movements, and more. We will give you the tools you need to transfer and pursue a four-year degree. Get a career in social work, research and many other advanced fields that will allow you to put your time here to good use.

Sociology Mission Statement

The mission of the Sociology Department is to serve a diverse student population in the community college and promote active learning and critical thinking skills, inspire social change, and build community through in depth study of society—its groups and institutions, social inequities, human behavior and the student’s role in their surroundings.
