California State University, Sacramento
Sociology is the study of the groups people build, the makeup of human groups, and changes in their makeup over time. This study of human groups assists students to learn who we are, to get closer to the truth about the social world, and to become aware of ways to achieve desired social ends.
Sociology, like other social science disciplines, does not educate students in specialized skills. Sociology and other liberal arts majors stress the ability to observe, organize and write clearly, as well as the development of skills in the analysis of data and in collaborating with others.
Organizations that most commonly employ sociologists are advertising agencies, banks, businesses, childcare agencies, community organizations, correctional institutions, governmental agencies, hospitals and health care organizations, personnel departments, and social services.
