Sociology majors have a curiosity about the human experience from a variety of different perspectives. They are driven to find the big answers to even bigger questions such as: "What causes crime? Who succeeds and why? Why do people engage in altruism - or conversely - commit acts of violence against one another?" (Sweet & Rothenberg, 2008)
While no one personality is more suited to sociology than another, students who are civically and socially minded are well suited to the practice of sociological imagination. Whether you are an exploratory prospective student, a student thinking about a second major, or a pre-med student preparing for the MCAT, consider taking SOC 302, The Introduction to the Study of Society. This introductory course will alter your worldview and may help you discover a new path in sociology!
