The subject matter of Sociology includes a wide variety of topics including social inequality, deviant behavior, criminology, gender, race and ethnicity, mental illness, non-western societies, law, corrections, aging, sports, and interpersonal violence. Sociology majors develop research skills and the ability to understand and connect individual lives with wider social forces
  • Sociologists study human behavior in industrialized societies. Sometimes this behavior involves personal relationships, perhaps among teenagers or the elderly, sometimes the difficulties facing the urban poor or drug addicts, sometimes the development of modern nation-states and political conflict. Sociology open new windows--challenging conventional wisdom, dissolving myths about social reality, illuminating how the world is socially constructed and clarifying our options and choices.
  • Sociology students at Cleveland State University are taught to analyze modern social problems scientifically. In addition, they are taught how to do research about these issues using statistics, interviews and participant observation. Good research requires a grasp of the "sociological imagination"--the connections between historical, large-scale social forces and biography, the ways in which people live and understand their lives.
  • Majors in sociology develop the critical thinking and writing skills basic to a sound liberal arts education; they learn research skills and an understanding of the sociological perspective. This prepares them for a wide range of careers: some students use the degree as preparation for graduate work in one of the social sciences or law, others work in human resource management, social service, criminal justice, corporations or schools.
  • Most students begin with "Principles of Sociology" (SOC 101). After completing this course, there is a wide range of 200, 300 and 400 level electives. Full course descriptions are given at Sociology Course Descriptions.
