DescriptionSociology is the theory and study of the development, structure, and functioning of human societies. Sociologists study the organization of our collective life, ranging from intimate couples to entire societies and their interconnections (e.g., the global economy). The sociology minor provides students with an overview of the fundamental concepts of the discipline.
