A bachelor's degree in sociology is an excellent way to ground your liberal arts degree. The sociological perspective helps one understand how society works and how it changes over time. Examining the importance of the social environment on individual and group behavior allows one to identify social norms and social trends. Sociological analysis provides new paradigms for understanding communities, organizations, families, cultures and societies. Sociology majors use their enhanced critical thinking and research skills in business, human services, the criminal justice system, education, and policy analysis. Sociological insights are valuable in every work and civic environment.
