Everyone is part of multiple social groups. Your local community, your ethnic group, your religious organization, your workplace, your team, your family – these are all examples of groups to which you might belong. The Sociology major at UWM offers students a chance to better understand these groups and the people within them.

Program Description

Students explore the social causes and consequences of human behavior, including topics such as political movements, population shifts, housing patterns, racism, gender inequality, the legal system, the medical profession, crime, families, sexuality, workplace organization, food cultures, and more. Students can take a broad range of courses or develop a specialization in areas such as social inequality, law and society, the sociology of gender or urban sociology.
