As a Sociology major, you will study societies and social groups—seeking out accurate information through social research, deeper understanding via theory, and a better world through policy evaluation and social justice.

Saint Rose Sociology majors use social theory to examine current issues while developing the ability to unmask social injustices—including those related to family, sexuality, gender, religion, race, ethnicity, health, politics, and social movements. They also complete internships in many different settings, including government agencies, business, and public and private agencies.
