Sociology has many subfields, including social psychology, social inequality, deviance, and medical sociology. We study family relationships, work, the economy, schools, gender roles, race, ethnic relations, criminal justice, politics, mental illness, and the impact of social class. Our major is designed to offer paths for students who want to acquire a general background as well as for those who wish to develop particular interests in a sociological subfield.
