We are all social beings. We must live in society and find ways to deal with others and make sense of the world that we create. Sociology studies humanity's diverse ways of interacting, the institutions and social systems we build and how society organizes itself. Brandman's Bachelor of Arts in Sociology is a valuable major for those planning a career in social work, urban planning, public health, gerontology, medicine, law, criminal justice or education.
Subject matters include social institutions and cultures, family patterns and relationships, social change, demographics, deviant behavior, mass media, and health-seeking behavior.
