Sociology Program Mission

The mission of the Sociology Program is to provide a quality, student-centered educational experience for students. The Sociology Program equips students with a marketable set of skills: critical thinking, civil discourse, analysis, cultural competency, and civic engagement, which will lead to excellence in their professional, civic, and personal lives. Through a Sociological education, students will become informed, ethical citizens and contribute to positive social change in their community, society, and culture. 

Vision Statement

Our vision, through education, research, and service, is to create informed, ethical citizens who are equipped to address complex real-world issues. We seek to be a force of positive social change with the goals of reducing social inequality and improving the lives of everyone.
