University Majors

California State University, Fresno
Sociology B.A.

Sociology''''s main concept- social structure- rests on the observation that society is more than a collection of individuals. As humans interact, they create social structure- a pattern of social arrangements and relationships. The concept of social structure refers to interaction networks, social organization, and power relationships. Studying the social structure helps understand how our choices, attitudes, and behaviors are shaped by the society in which we live. Sociology can help identify social problems, locate the source of those problems in the social structure, assess their scope and design, and evaluate possible solutions. This understanding helps us take better charge of our lives, to become shapers of society, and not to be just shaped by it. From the sociological perspective, effecting social change necessairly involves understanding social structure.
