Develop your sociological imagination!
As C. Wright Mills put it, a sociological imagination allows us to understand how personal troubles are connected to and constructed by public issues, enabling us to “grasp history and biography, and the relations between the two.” Thus, issues such as personal finances, relationship challenges, workplace concerns, personal attitudes, or quality of life, to a sociologist, are the outcroppings of more sustained questions of inequality, gender relations, stratification, global history, ideology, or other systematic ways of organizing social interaction within a given culture.
Our students link with organizations in the immediate community and beyond, even during their studies. Faculty members have supervised independent and applied studies as well as Co-op placements, involving collaborations with schools, human service agencies, and government offices. Our undergraduate and graduate students emerge prepared for a broad and exciting range of opportunities including work in community agencies, health and family services, social work, political and social activism, and future study at the M.A. and Phd levels.
