Minor: Sociology
(SOC)

Sociology is the scientific study of human groups and societies-- how they develop, how they are structured, and how they function. Sociologists look at social relationships and interactions, power and conflict, structures that hold societies together, and how societies change. The undergraduate program in sociology at the University of Oregon is designed to provide a broad understanding of human society for students in all fields. The Minor in Sociology is a popular choice for students in other fields who wish to enhance their understanding of society and the behavior of people.
