Welcome to the CTX Sociology Major! We are glad that you’ve chosen this field of study. According to sociology faculty, here is what makes this major distinct and what you will learn:

Compared to other behavioral sciences, like psychology which focuses on how individuals operate and maneuver through interactions, sociology focuses on larger institutional forces and entities that impact us as individuals. It also focuses on how those forces and entities are developed over time and how they are changed by individuals.
