You will explore the historical, modern, and current approaches to matters affecting society and possible remedies through direct engagement and policy. Not only will you explore aspects of sociology from an academic approach, but you’ll also have the opportunity to engage with organizations and practitioners in the field through practicums and internships.

Areas of opportunity to work in include mental health, family crisis, people with addiction, working with those experiencing homelessness, felon re-entry, racial and economic inequality, and many more. Those areas are extremely relevant in any human services field, such as social services, human resources, counseling, law enforcement, and more.
