Study society, understand humanity 

Your years at SFA promise to enlighten you to a new form of society, the intellectually stimulating atmosphere of a college campus. As you plunge into this exciting environment, it’s only natural to pause and consider the origins and evolution of modern society.

Sociology is the study of human social behavior, including society’s evolution throughout history and current societal construction. Explore issues that turn up in the news each day, like crime, race relations and gender equality. These issues shape our society, and you’ll have the opportunity to research, analyze and discuss them with your professors and fellow students. 

Diverse career options

A sociology degree provides a broad basis from which to explore career prospects. Most sociologists work in research organizations, colleges and universities, and government agencies.
