Undergraduate majors in sociology take courses in the substantive areas of sociology, sociological statistics, sociological research methods, and sociological theory. Students will investigate the social world by using a range of distinctive theoretical perspectives and quantitative/qualitative research techniques.  Topics of sociological research include social problems, social norms and deviance, social diversity, social change and inequality. Examples include the effects of divisions along ethnic, gender, age, and social class lines on access to health care, educational achievement, work and other social opportunities. Others focus on the analysis of the care of elders and children, human sexuality, medical care, poverty, crime, and social movements.
