The minor will provide students an understanding of how societies and human behavior are shaped by cultural, structural and institutional forces. It will get students to consider how people are more than the sum total of their individualistic and voluntaristic dispositions. Sociological understandings can help students to make positive changes in social institutions, social structures, and people’s everyday lives.
