Sociology is the study of why humans do the things they do. Students learn research techniques, creative reasoning, and communication methods—core skills that can translate into a wide variety of careers including in counseling, marketing, criminal justice, or psychology.


About two-thirds of those who said their jobs were closely related to what they had learned as sociology majors were very satisfied with their jobs, according to a survey by the American Sociological Association. Additionally, more than three-quarters of majors said they were very satisfied with their choice of sociology as a major.

Why this program 

• At CWU, studying sociology is a chance to grasp the relationship between history, society and the individual’s life. • CWU’s McNair Scholars Program pairs students in one-on-one faculty research mentorships and provides guidance through the graduate school application process.
