KU's Department of Sociology, founded in 1890, is the oldest Sociology department in the United States.
Sociology is the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. Since all human behavior is social, few fields have such broad scope and relevance for research, theory, and the application of knowledge.
As a Sociology major, you will investigate the institutions and social processes that shape human behavior, history and opportunity. You will also have ample opportunities to enhance your education with internships with the Willow Domestic Violence Center, Liberty Mutual and the Johnson County Court Services.
