Sociology examines stability and change in social life by addressing the underlying patterns of social relations in formal organizations, in legal institutions, and in the family, economy, and political arena. Coursework focuses on the criminal justice system and criminal behavior, mental health, families and close relationships, education, urban and rural communities, politics and policy formation, social movements and social change, diverse racial and ethnic groups, and social psychology. Faculty interests in the comparative study of social relations and institutions in various countries add an international emphasis to these areas of study. All sociology courses emphasize the skills of social inquiry necessary for analyzing patterns of social relationships. The sociology BS program is for students interested in developing a rigorous mathematical concentration in research methodologies. This option builds on course requirements for the sociology BA program by featuring 12-16 additional credits of upper division coursework in one of four clusters: (1) Organizations, Business, or Non-Profits, (2) Health Care and Careers, (3) Policy Analysis, or (4) Quantitative Emphasis. For more information, visit the sociology website at www.cla.umn.edu/sociology/.
