Sociology gives you the opportunity to analyze and understand the human experience as it relates to religion, family dynamics, institutions, race, and social class. You can explore how society influences our beliefs, attitudes, actions, and worldview.

Sociology explores the causes and consequences of racial and gender identity, aging, religious faith, love and relationships, crime, poverty, wealth, discrimination, and social movements. Sociology majors obtain valuable insight into social relations in any social context and develop their conceptual and critical thinking skills to understand issues of diversity, social control, social institutions, inequality, social policy and socio-cultural change.

I have found so many great mentors here whose main focus has been to always remind me to never become complacent, never take on too much, and to always make sure I am creating opportunities for others.
