Why choose a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology at Saint Leo?

Why are some people poor and others rich? How do education levels, race, religion and class affect people's life chances? How are our actions in America related to what happens throughout the world? Sociologists study society and social behavior. They seek to understand the way groups think and interact. They think about problems in society and how to best provide solutions. As a Saint Leo Sociology student, you’ll gain insights into social behavior and learn how to create change in your community and in the world around you.

Explore cutting-edge issues in sociology—including globalization, race, gender, urbanization, and medical and environmental matters. Learn how to conduct research and analyze data, searching for answers to vital questions: How do we solve problems like poverty and homelessness? How does public policy impact U.S. family life? How can state-sanctioned punishment reduce criminal deviance?

Conduct your own research project from start to finish using qualitative and quantitative methods and advanced statistical techniques. With an open mind, compare social phenomena across different cultures to understand groups, organizations and institutions, and make an impact as a lawmaker, administrator, educator or researcher.
