Sociology (B.A. or minor)

Sociology examines the organizations, structures, and changes in societal groups. It combines rigorous methods of inquiry and analysis with a remarkable freedom of choice in research topics: mass media, the environment, racism, gender issues, class, peace and war, and deviance and social control, to name just a few. At Boston College, sociology students are also introduced to an activist approach towards issues of social justice and equality, making the sociological experience here not only rigorous and creative but also socially relevant and engaged. Training in sociology is useful in a broad range of occupations and also prepares students for graduate study in a variety of disciplines.
