Department of Sociology

BU4UThe Sociology program at Belmont University gives you an excellent liberal arts foundation for embarking on a wide range of career paths in a variety of professional settings such as International Relations, Marketing Research, Education, City Management, Gerontology, Criminal Justice and Law.

Our majors develop research skills that make them marketable in today's technical and data-oriented work environments. Majors also develop the analytical skills and the critical ability to understand how a society's major social arrangements, including race, class, and gender, influence social life at the level of the individual, the organization and society.

Learning to think critically and apply knowledge in support of an argument is extremely important in a fast-changing job market. As a Sociology major you have a competitive advantage in today's information society.

We invite you to learn more about our program, our faculty and our students.
